Outside interest

I have a wide variety of interests. I love being outdoors and playing most sports some of my favorites are racquetball, scuba diving, hiking, backpacking but sometimes just sitting down with a good book is almost as good. I would rather do almost anything outside than sit in front of a television and watch a sport I like. Some of the books I have enjoyed in the past are Good to Great, First of all, break all the rules, The Stainless Steel Rat, The Question Behind the Question, and the E-Myth.

Volunteer Activities

  1. Mentoring with Hats program (Help a Teen Succeed) and a subset called “Project Dove” both programs are for at-risk children. I have been a mentor for four boys over the last 22 years.
  2. Twice a month I volunteer at Juvenile Detention Housing. I talk to the youth about their problems and future plans for about 2 to 3 hours. (I stopped doing this in 2015)
  3. A friend of mine and I bought a house for Kevin Lamson to start Hearts with a Mission. (read what Kevin has to say on my reference page)
  4. Counseling with a variety people on business, marriage, or just life.
