I'm a dad, husband, master beekeeper, aspiring luthier, musician, local food enthusiast, recovering engineer, and renewable energy project manager. In my next life I'd go back in time to 1950's Granada, Spain where I'd work in the backroom of some obscure flamenco guitar shop. I'm originally from Tucson, Arizona where I once managed and bred queens for 200 colonies of honey bees just a few miles off of the Saguaro National Monument (picture those big tall cacti with arms and rattlesnakes everywhere). We finally decided to give in to our dream of putting real green grass and puddles under my adorable children's feet and moved to the Pacific NW in June 2021. "Starting over" by Chris Stapleton is one of my favorite songs.
