A Montana man, born and raised. I love dreaming and living under the big sky, and am grateful for the opportunity to protect the communities I cherish. I enjoy the craft of writing a great deal, and I am working in my free time with the goal of becoming an author full-time. Until that goal is reached, I am happy to bear a badge with honor.
I'm a big man, but the good Lord has blessed me with quite a bit of athleticism. I've been working on trimming down in size since the start of June 2015, and 50 pounds have said their farewells (for reals!). I find myself learning to enjoy a healthier lifestyle. I love the outdoors, and a good book indoors just as much. I've had opportunity to travel a bit, and it is one of my favorite things to see the stages where world and family history have played out.
My folks will tell you that I was a stubborn handful (actually, an armful...okay, okay! Two armfuls!), but I did get two of their teachings right: "Do hard things," and "If it's worth doing, it's worth doing right." I strive to live by those words. My family are my favorite people, and "Uncle" is my most prized title. I am zealous in the effort of orchestrating and/or participating in family gatherings.
I was born into the gospel, and am thankful for that blessing every day. The love that sincere gospel living engenders is priceless, and it is it clear that there is so much to do at home to be engaged in the building of the kingdom. As Christ said, "freely have ye received. Freely give."
My biggest goal, and the motivation behind all my efforts, is to be a husband and father that provides his family with love, protection, and the means to cultivate a great future. I will support my wife in all her goals, professional, domestic, and personal, because I know she will do the same for me. We are meant to be equal partners, and that means full support of each other's approach to a common vision.
