A work in progress – a constantly self-correcting updating Book of Life.
Husband and Dad – Both are just as important.
Nice guy – Be good to people. Always show respect.
Philosopher – Life is about balance. Every story has two sides, the truth lies somewhere in the middle. Always tell the truth if the truth matters and most times it does. If no one saw you do it, you didn’t do it. The unexpected gift at an unexpected time means the most. Always send flowers to her work.
Cook – Family meals are important.
Technology Enthusiast – Learning new things keeps you young.
The early Years:
A long time ago in a county far, far away…. Tripoli, Libya to be exact I was born. My Dad was in the Air Force stationed on Wheeler Air Force base. The next eighteen years were spent moving all over the place and having a blast doing it. Learning more through my travels as a military brat than I could have ever hoped. Moving about every 3 or 4 years sometimes only after a year. Six states and two foreign countries ended up in Florida being a beach bum during the last 2 years of high school.
The Single years, The 80’s:
After taking a year off after high school, I joined the Army to see the world and ended up being stationed in Maryland. I had an amazing lot of fun running around the east coast. Drinking too much beer, jumping out of an airplane, and getting into a little too much trouble. Towards the end of the 80’s I left the Army I started working for the government.
The Family years, The 90’s and beyond:
The 80’s closed with me meeting my future wife. We married and had 3 wonderful kids. Can’t even dream of a life without them all. It’s been one long, strange trip, but I wouldn’t have missed a minute of it.
