My wife Glenda and I have four children ranging from age 27 to 14. We've married off two daughters and have another going into high school for the 2021-2022 school year! Raising a family and giving each kid the attention they deserve isn’t easy but we are grateful to God to have kids that love Jesus and have servant’s hearts.
In our spare time, we enjoy serving in our local church and hosting friends and family at our home. Glenda is from Guatemala, so we take the opportunity each year to go down to visit friends and family and explore different parts of the country, which is beautiful with all the volcanoes and nature it has.
My passion outside of work is trying to become a decent cook, particularly smoking barbeque. I’m hoping to take my BBQ skills to the next level by competing in local competitions after taking 4th place in Beef Brisket in my first comp in 2015!
