My wife and I have two wonderful daughters. We are very involved in their activities: gymnastics, basketball, soccer, and piano. We love God and are active in our local church. I have loved cooking, especially baking, since I was about 10 years old. I credit my dad with instilling the love of cooking in me. He was definitely the cook in our family when I was growing up. He's still the best cook I know. It's a good thing he taught me to cook since my wife hates it. I retired from teaching in the spring of 2010, and I love staying home to be a full-time "Mr. Mom".
