I enjoy spending time with my four dogs, tennis, backpacking playing retro videogames and darts. I have also been an avid table tennis player and love to swim and be active in general. I have owned my own small business (Better Than New, Furniture Repair and Kitchen Restoration) for 18 years and try to give a 110% at work and play. I love people and truly enjoy talking and learning about other people’s life experiences. I have been involved in music all my life and have a small recording studio in Tempe named Sock Monkey Recording Studios. I have been a lead singer and songwriter several semi-professional and professional bands throughout the years. I currently am a lead vocalist at my church on the worship team.My dream is to someday build a log cabin in Northern Arizona as a second home and to spend more time traveling to Europe. I have been to Germany, Prague, Scotland and Great Britain. I truly feel that learning from other cultures and traditions has been an enriching part of my life.
