Writing a bio for yourself is a bit like writing your own obituary.  What do you write?  What do you omit?  What do you make sound better that it actually is?

I was born in 1965 in Richmond, Virginia.

My Dad was in the Air Force, so every few years, we packed up and moved.  I had been in every state except Alaska and Hawaii by the time I was 10 years old.  Traveling in the days before video games and iPods meant I saw a lot of this great country from the back of a pickup truck, with my 3 brothers and the collie all trying to “hold it” until the next rest stop.

Married?  Yes … best decision I ever made.  Thank God Lori said “yes”.
Two kids, Zachary and Spencer.  When Trace Adkins sings “You’re Gonna Miss This”, I know what he means.

Life is good.
