Me at 4 & 40. My shirt is on backwards in the 4 photograph because just before the photo I took a drink from the drinking fountain and got my shirt wet. So my quick thinking mother turned my shirt around.
Family | I live in Rexburg, Idaho, with my beautiful wife and children.
Farm | Over the past two years, we have had a dog, cats, goats, chickens, and rabbits. In the summer of 2009 we shared a trout farm with a neighbor. In the summer of 2010 eight chicks hatched and followed their mothers around the yard eating all of the spiders. It is nice to live outside of town where we can enjoy our little farm.
Favorite things | Teaching, Apple computers, iPod, iPad, books, ant farms, monarch caterpillars, hammocks, receiving packages and Legos.
Transplant | On May 26, 2008, I received a liver transplant. I am alive today because of a caring person willing to be a donor. Please consider being an organ donor.
