WELCOME
TO MY WORLD

When I was only ten, I learned how to type on a manual typewriter. A-S-D-F...J-K-L-;...since then, I’ve written over 2,000 blogs and enjoy sharing my words with others. 

As a writer, you see the world around you as a story waiting to be told. Every experience acts as an actor for this beautiful story we’re fortunate enough to call “life.” I hope you appreciate my writing as much as I’ve had, living the story.

I remember years when I had big dreams and ambitions for my life. There was once a time where I craved more from life and pursued it with a relentless passion. Then you get older, and you find yourself somehow taking longer to go through the moments. You find yourself.

Rockstar

Writing
Earlier this week, I was listening to one of my favorite artists, TobyMac, who I’ve listened to since I was ten years old. “Twenty One” played, and I realized there was more to the song than his usual work. A quick online search showed his son, Truett, had passed away.

For many years, I’ve stared at an empty screen and watched as my words filled the blank canvas with their tales. I’ve never been one of the writers to sit in front of a typewriter while waiting for inspiration to strike. The words just flow, it seems. And other times,.

The 944

Over the last few years, I’ve been posting photos of a Porsche 944 my mentor, Nate, has been restoring. The process has been one helluva journey, and it’s taught me a lot about life, love, and the effort that goes into making something perfect. It all began some three years.

The book is incredible, and it's made for a new favorite pastime; reading chapters aloud with my partner, then discussing what we learned. Try it. One of the stories in the book.

What is Love?

Over five years ago, I found myself in a place more unique than any of my experiences. One of my favorite parts of traveling is experiencing sights, sounds, and tastes that deviate from my normal routine. Yet, this was no country. It was a city that sprung to life, and.
