Married to my best friend, Samantha. I have two awesomely beautiful daughters, Hailey and Addison; we also have an active little boy, Walker! I still occasionally fly helicopters with the local Coast Guard Auxiliary, and I fly Light Sport Category airplanes out of X59. I fly fish, play guitar and write music.
I suffer from refractory ulcerative colitis. I survived necrotizing fasciitis / myositis - I was 24hrs out from amputation. I am privileged to work with a veteran's non profit in Bozeman,MT www.thestationfoundation.org. I have never texted "LOL", "LMAO" or any derivation thereof.
