I'm a husband, writer, photographer, weather geek, aviation nut, sports dude, achievement addict, and coffee connoisseur. I do love a nice cup of coffee. Well, two cups. OK, an entire pot! It helps fuel my passion for writing. I also love shoot’em up titles and challenging for top positions on leaderboards. I’m an all-around gamer who owns too many consoles and handhelds. Rez HD is the best game ever. Ghost Recon is my favorite series.
