Here is a little information about me
I'm a father to an adorable two year old daughter and I'm a husband to a beautiful, loving wife. You could say I'm a nerd as I love computers, geeky board games, movies and books. I also enjoy mountain biking, camping and anything outdoors. My family is my primary focus in life and I will do everything I can to provide for them and give them the best life possible.
