I firmly believe that every person has some sort of common ground with every other person. It is sometimes hidden under years of experiences or views or circumstances. But I think that given a perfect coffee shop with excellent coffee and sandwiches, a good internet connection for references and an unwavering commitment to patience and respect, we could any one of us sit down with any other of us and find common ground on which to build a truly meaningful relationship. And once you know that connection exists, then you can extend that connection to anyone you meet, regardless of if you’ve had the chance to actually sit down and find it.
Responsibility - I take ownership of what I say I will do. I am committed to stable values such as honesty and loyalty
Belief - I have certain core values that are unchanging and out of these values has emerged a defined purpose for my life.
Relator - I enjoy close relationships with others, and I find deep satisfaction in working hard with friends to achieve a goal.

My wife of 27 years and my 4 children are my passion and joy. I’m extremely proud of all five of them and cherish every minute I get to spend with any of them. I enjoy cooking, hiking and camping and am passionate about coffee and spending time with friends and family. I love to restore or upgrade cars and work on them as a hobby.
