Ø  Throughout my life there have been two constants, family and sports.  Below you will find out why and how they remain a big part of my life today:

o   Family

§  There is nothing more important to me than my family; especially my son Grayson.  He is a 4 year old who makes me smile and laugh even on the worst days.  I am very lucky and thankful to have such a supportive and caring family.

o   Golf

§  If it was possible, I would golf every day of my life.  I stand by the saying, “playing a bad round of golf beats not playing any day of the week.”
