I am an active duty Chief Warrant Officer in the U.S. Coast Guard and am currently stationed in Norfolk Virginia. I have been a Christian since I was about 8 years old. The military lifestyle limits affiliation with any church for very long because we transfer every three to four years. I'm pretty sure that I have saltwater flowing through my veins and sand in what's left of my hair. I was born in Indiana, and have lived in Illinois, Michigan, California, North Carolina, Montana, Alaska, Puerto Rico, Hawaii, and Virginia. Due to the military lifestyle, I consider myself to be a professional nomad. Author of the book, The Seagull Who Was Afraid To Fly (ISBN 1413718906).
