My foremost and most proudest title in this world is Father and Husband.  After that you can call me writer of various things.  I've written numerous pieces about a variety of topics as you'll see from my hub history.  I recently discovered poetry thanks to a wonderful person here on Hubpages that inspired me to try it out.  Some of my favorite poems that I wrote include:

Suicide: A Poem

Divorce: A Poem

My Wife: A Poem

Wintry Night: A Poem

I, however, am not just a poet if you choose to call me that.  I have also written some stories that to me were funny, some of my friends also found them to be funny.  They are:

Embarrassment at the Gym

Grouse Hunt

Topsey Exotic Ranch

Again this is not all I am.  I have written pieces to teach like my work out instuctions, diamond purchasing instructions, I've even taught how to build walls.  I've talked about my top ten list of things I love, and hopefully you will too.

I currently have three novels in progress, but as a terrible procrastinator I've not yet finished them.  Someday I will, and someday you will get to see one on bookstore shelves everywhere.

Aside from the above mentioned things that I am, I am also a Soldier.  I work on vehicles as a mechanic and my dream car is a 1970 Chevelle.  Some say the 69 was better but I disagree and have to say the 70. I suppose I should say that I have deployed to Iraq four times and am currently serving my fourth combat tour here in Iraq.

My poetry has been compared, on a reminiscent note, to that of Edgar Allan Poe.  I am deeply honored and humbled by this comparison but feel it is not deserved as I only recently started into poetry. 

Other than that I haven't much more to say except, "Enjoy your time on my page and I hope you enjoy reading my writings."
