Things I like to do:
Hanging out with my wife, daughters, and family, attending Reds games, hunting and fishing, playing drums, kayaking, and hanging out with friends.
I showed an interest in the drums after my dad took me to Record Town to pick up a Michael Jackson album. My father grabbed Kiss Alive II which showcased all four members on the cover, after seeing Peter Criss and asking my Dad what they were all about...it was over.
