About Me

I hit up the minor leagues in 2007 leaving college for the real world not knowing what would become of it.   Starting working and within 3 months of leaving college met the love of my life.  Proposed 5 months later, rookies do tend to work fast right?

Moved up the ranks in the minor leagues as I married my wonderful wife about a year later.  Exactly a year after getting married we moved into our first house!

I declared my intent to go pro in fatherhood in the month of March 2010.   I didn’t intend to enter into the draft that soon but it just kind of fell into my hands.  I was drafted in August 2010 by Team William and made my debut on Nov. 8th, 2010.

Making my first start has been alittle rocky, I’m a rookie and I understand that.  As a rookie you make mistakes, learn, and grow.   I don’t consider myself a pro at life, being a husband (ask my wife she’ll agree), a son, a brother, or a father.  I’ll leave that to when I am older then 50.

Questions, comments, concerns, Email Me!


  1. Ah, but you weren’t a surprise to William. You and your wife are his “perfect fit.” Rest easy and enjoy the journey!

  2. I was not ready to be a parent either- even though we were trying! Now I can’t imagine not being one (although somedays I do fantasize about my sleep and freedom! :))

  3. Found you by accident but your blog made me smile. You and William will grow together, you will learn about life, yourselves and each other. Enjoy the journey (there isn’t an end to it) and it’s certainly a special one!
