I am a family man who loves nothing more than being with my wife and boy. I love football, hunting, church activities, gardening, and anything my son is into.
I am very proud of my heritage that includes (but of course is not limited to) Irish, Scotland, and Native American. My Scottish roots are from the Lowlands, Native American roots are from the Cherokee nation and my Irish roots are mostly from the Ulster province.
