favorite high school memory

I was a pretty boring guy in High School.  I did run the Noon time movie and assisted on the Stage Crew.

I have worked over 30,000 hours of Insurance Related Surveillance in the entire state of Florida.  I have testified in County, State and Federal Courts.  I have been on short term missions to the Dominic Republic and Panama.  My wife and I have traveled to Eastern Europe, Israel, Egypt and the Baltic Sea.  

standout event

June 24, 2016 I was baptized in the Jordon River in Israel. It has changed my life.  

unforgettable trip

Both trips to Egypt and Israel are unforgettable.  The Egypt trip was with the Smithsonian and it was incredible. The Israel trip was with a Christian Pastor and two Jewish Rabbis.  

little-known fact

I do not like speaking about myself!
