Short Bio: I was born into a Christian family in Cottage Grove, Oregon and came to know Jesus as my Savior at an early age. We moved to Tillamook and then to Albany by age 4 where I stayed until graduating High School. I started working in Portland for my uncle at age 18 to pay off my first hunting rifle and attended Junior College in Albany, commuting back and forth. After a year of that I became a self employed contractor and have been in the Portland area ever since. After spending 4 months in Hawaii framing houses and remodeling, my aunt set me up on a blind date with my wife, Kelly. That was 25 years ago. We are blessed to have 2 kids; Hannah and Josh. Through all of the ups and downs of life, He is always faithful and leads me down His path.
