                      We love to play outside in the yard, my kids dance and swim and keep us very busy!
                      I am an avid reader. Big fan of Stephen King, Harry Potter, and books about the 19th Century, Ancient Rome, and                            Religion, I love audiobooks as well, since I drive to work.
                      My wife and I traveled before we had kids. Mostly North America and the Carribean.
                      I love music. I have no musical talent however. I am a child of the 90's and am a big fan of music from that era.
                      We have three cats.
