I'm not the type of person to sit here and write some sort of self-glorifying story. I am one of the humblest people you could ever meet. Everyday, I give thanks to God for all that has been given to me...my wife, my two boys, my family, and my friends, the list goes on. Like every other human being, I have been challenged with countless trials, tribulations, and tradgedies; however, I have been blessed to have survived and thrived through all of it. My parents instilled many important values in me. Two that I continue to hold close to my heart are 1) you never know someone until you've walked a mile in their shoes and 2) when you think your life has hit rock bottom and is a disaster, step outside of yourself, see the suffering that others endure all around you, then say a prayer for the continued blessings you receive. These values have challenged me to give of myself in any way possible to help those less fortunate than I am. That's why I'm here...on this site...hoping to encourage others to make a difference in someone else's life!
