Welcome to my site. Here you will find a collection of some of my favorite images, thoughts, and works. There is so little time and so much left to be accomplished. My experience has spanned many fields over the years. I count them all as successes because of the profit of knowledge I have learned and the great and not so great people I have met along the way. My favorites: I love the outdoors and hunting, training and teaching Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, designing things, photography and spending time with my wife and daughter.
