About me

I love a challenge. I love doing things that I have never done before. I love getting my hands dirty. I love seeing a project nally come together after you think you’ve tried everything and then it all falls into place. I love work. I love play. Even better when it’s work AND play. I love coffee. I kinda love when things go wrong because then you know not to do them again. I love being able to say, “I helped do that”. I love seeing in the dawn. I love it when people say, “I love it”.
