A Little About Me

Where to start…

My grandfather would say that I take after him, as we both have what he has coined “Tinker-itis”. I don’t sit still and have too many hobbies and interests! My girlfriend and kids will agree.

I have two wonderful daughters and I’m rebuilding my life and dreams after being divorced.

I left home at the age of 18 to explore the world in the U.S. Navy. I served for 6 years on active duty and another 6 years as a reservist. Most of my naval career was spent in Norfolk, Virginia. I lived in Kansas for a year stint and 7 months in Dubai.

I’m currently living in the Shenandoah Valley of Virginia – one of the most beautiful places I’ve ever seen.
