Bio 

Former warrior for the United States, and current warrior for God. Trying to pay the bills by turning wrenches and support my love of telling stories of the work God has done in my life. "And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death" (Revelation 12:11).
