A Little More About Me

Over the past several years, I have ventured into many different fields to continue challenging myself and my abilities. From networking engineering to software testing, web design to bookkeeping, daddy daycare during the pandemic to opening our own business. The challenges of learning something new is what drives my passion to try different things.

My interests that keep me busy, first and foremost, are my family, working on cars, DJ-ing, and golf. Definitely a golf enthusiast! I love to travel with my family. The perfect vacation for me is watching my kids play on the beach while I relax and enjoy a cocktail. I've recently found interests in trying different things on my Traeger.

You are the only person I know that can do anything. From fixing cars to fixing computers, you can do it all. Theodore Eliadis
