My Hobbies

Merit Badge Counselor

I enjoy volunteering as a merit badge counselor. I’ve been doing it for many years and my favorite badges are Animation, Chess, and Game Design. I typically work with about 60-80 scouts each year.


I started working with wood when I first got married. I created a cradle for my first child and found that I enjoyed building things. My favorite tool is my 21-inch Excalibur scroll saw. My second favorite is my 14-inch JET band saw.


I like growing my own vegetables and some indoor plants. Green peppers, basil, and lettuce do especially well here in Ohio. My dream someday is to get a greenhouse so I can grow them year-round along with some herbs.

I am a co-leader in the 7 Days Ascending alliance in the mobile game called Empires & Puzzles. We are frequently in the top 100 worldwide and are working on improving our ability to take down 12-star titans. I’m at level 52 and have been playing for over a year and a half.
