“It’s not having what you want. It’s wanting what you’ve got.”

– Sheryl Crow Soak Up The Sun

Yes, I just quoted Sheryl Crow. I own it. This is a product of being raised in the 90s. However, I happen to honestly believe this quote. There is a peace of mind when you appreciate what you’ve been given. From shelter to family to freedom, life is good.

I’ve been fortunate in my career to travel and through my work travels, I’ve been shown many wonderful cultures and countries. This has really shaped my outlook on my personal life, the gifts I’ve been granted, and the abundant blessings. I believe in giving back, helping causes I believe in, volunteering, honoring our armed forces, preserving our beautiful national parks, and pledging allegiance to our flag. I also like to give to animal organizations and charities such as the American Cancer Society and the Children’s Hospital Foundation, to name a few.

I like to get creative, here is a gallery of some recent projects.
