Welcome to my Website

Scouting

I enjoy counseling scouts in various merit badges. If you are looking for a counselor, please contact me. 

For the merit badges I have presented, each one has a PowerPoint presentation and other materials you are welcome to use. I believe in using lots of different media to keep things interesting.

Gardening

In 2019 I decided to start indoor gardening in hopes of raising food items year-round. I had lots of luck growing peppers and tomatoes outside, but now I wanted lettuce, spinach, basil, and other edibles all the time. It was hard at first, but I’m getting better.

Woodworking

Building things out of wood is so much easier to share than software. Ornaments, gifts, and the occasional decoration are fun to make when I have the time. Unfortunately, I’ve gotten so busy that it is hard to find time to get into the shop.

Traveling

We live in a great country and there are so many great places to visit. There are many parks, museums, and places like Beale Street in Memphis or the Hocking Hills in South Eastern Ohio. Not to mention hiking trails everywhere. What a great way to stay in shape.
