"The world of books is the most remarkable creation of man. Nothing else that he builds ever lasts. Monuments fall, nations perish, civilizations grow old and die out; and, after an era of darkness, new races build others.

I am an avid writer, and reader of books both fiction and non. I enjoy reading historical biographies, particularly, and I am fortunate to work in a field that allows me to help, in some small part, in preserving history for future generations.

I am a Christian, trying every day to live life more abundantly in and obedient to Christ.
