Recent Activity  -


I've just left an 11 year career in the Financial and Technology Fields and have finally achieved my goal of being the Head Brewer for a brewery. Well, in this case a brew pub. Time for a new goal. I want to win gold at the Great American Beef Festival and/or the U.S. Open Beer Championships. Born in 1978 in Providence, RI. My dad was also Navy (LT, 1966-1970). My brother is a Marine (SGT 86-92). My uncle was Navy PO2 and my cousin is a retired Air Force MSgt. I guess you could say we're a military family. After the Navy I went home to RI for four years and broke into the Financial Industry. That industry took me to Dallas, TX where I met my wife, Erin in 2009. We married in 2011 and have a beagle, Beamer. Unfortunately his buddy, Ace died in March 2017
