Since moving to Louisiana, my wife and I have taken up and love kayaking. There are several great places to kayak right here in Slidell and all along the Northshore. I can be on the bayou in 15-20 minutes. For me, there is not a better place for feeling close to God than being on a kayak surrounded by all the natural beauty and wildlife, and having our dogs with us is a bonus!
My family means everything to me. Gina, my wife of 25 years, will graduate from seminary in May 2018 and hopes to work as a chaplain at an Episcopal School. We have two beautiful children, Hannah and Oliver. Hannah is 23 years old, lives in Hammond and is in the Army National Guard. Oliver is 21 years old and attends the University of the Arts in Philadelphia.
