My Projects

I’ve enjoyed being creative as long as I can remember. Growing up, I really enjoyed drawing. I spent countless hours at my drawing board. Nowadays, I enjoy spending my time finding creative non-work-related projects to work on. Below is a run-down of some the things I’ve been into. 

Woodworking Projects

Back around 2005, I got started in woodworking when I built my first poker table. I found some plans online, bought some supplies and built the table in my uncle’s garage using his tools. Since then, I’ve built 14+ poker tables along with countless shelves, desks, other pieces of furniture and things for my kids. Over the years, I’ve acquired my own tools and have a nice little wood shop in my own garage. Woodworking has grown into one of my favorite pastimes and I look for every opportunity to build something myself.

LEGO Projects

As a kid growing up in the 1980’s, I loved building with LEGO bricks. There wasn’t nearly the selection that there is now but it always captured my imagination. Now that I have kids, it’s something I can share with them. Over time, we’ve accumulated a ton of loose LEGO bricks in our house and I’ve used those loose bricks to build my own custom creations.

Video Gaming Dad

In 2014, I started a blog to share about my experiences as a dad and husband. In the first couple of years, I wrote several times per week. I’ve slowed down in the past couple of years because of work responsibilities and other things going on. While I don’t write nearly as often as I would like, it has been a fun experience. It’s cool to go back and read about the things I’ve done with my family. I still have plans for the blog and hope to get back to it eventually.

New Father’s Guide

Back in 2008, I wanted to find a good gag gift to give a friend that was expecting the birth of his first child. I couldn’t find anything I liked in bookstores. Having recently experienced the birth of my second son, I was inspired to put some thoughts together in a book to give to new dads. I self-printed the book through an online publisher and off I went.

Adventures in Video Gaming

I grew up as an avid video gamer. Throughout my life, I’ve owned just about every video gaming system imaginable. Before my kids were born, I tried to parlay my love of video gaming into several business ventures.
