Location: Spring, Texas

I work as a pastor at a local congregation, where I do counseling and marriage education for couples.

I've been married for 30+ years to my wonderful bride Christy. I have two kids, both grown, and two grand children that are pretty amazing!

Working in my garage/workshop is much needed "therapy" for me. Anyone who has a stressful job can agree with how much we need to unwind, and toying with a project is that escape for me. I am not a seasoned woodworker, (no pun intended) as I don't possess a lot of the more expensive equipment, however I love building things no matter how it's done. I am working on acquiring more equipment, albeit the size of my garage has limitations, so I'll have to make due with what I've been blessed with.

I especially like to "repurpose" things; building things from old discarded items. It is actually spiritual to me, in that we ourselves are "repurposed" beings. God takes our old self and makes it into something new: Old scars and imperfections are beautiful; in us and in our handmade creations. (2 Corinthians 5:17)
