Was born and raised in South Louisiana, hunting and fishing with my Dad and brother. Transplanted to southern RI (still a southern boy!) 30 years ago, achieving a graduate degree in Ocean Engineering from URI. Have been working for the Navy research lab in Newport for the past 25 years. Have a beautiful wife and 4 great children (oldest 2 married). Outside of work, in order of importance, there is the family, church (chairman of the Elder Board), and hunting and fishing when I can.
Next time a sunrise steals your breath or a meadow of flowers leaves you speechless, remain that way. Say nothing and listen as heaven whispers, "Do you like it? I did it just for you." -- Max Lucado
