Ok so it's time to update my bland, lifeless, profile. Oddly enough I'm not a wordy individual so it is hard for me to discribe who I am. 

First I'm husband and a father. I have one wife and one daughter. Both my wife and I are full time college students, which is the result of our mutual midlife crisise. My daughter is a 12 year old overachiever who keeps us all on our toes. 

In the past I have been a carpenter, a project manager, a pest control technician, a nuisance wildlife removal expert, a mortuary delivery driver, a boat builder, a reptile breeder, a worm farmer, and a fish bumb. 

Most of my life has been spent trying to figure out what I want to be when I grow up. It's been a rough road, but one well worth taking. My life goals or maybe bucket list includes traveling/living in Alaska, loosing 50 lbs, finding it again, earning my secondary ed degree and teaching high school biology, starting a few more businesses, playing with my grandchildren (in about 18 years), fishing a lot, and staying young at heart. 

So why am I on hubpages? The answer is simple. Hubpages gives me a place to center myself. When I write I focus, something which is very hard for me. My mind is always in ten different places (sometimes more), but when I write it calms me which also reduces my dependance on antianxiety medications. 

Hubpages is a great outlet for those who wish to express themselves and I'm truly greatful for the opportunity!
