I love to design and build things!!

What experience has taught me.

What experience has taught me.

Don’t give up, learn from your mistakes, and stay committed.

When I’m not at work I.....

am working with my bees. Ten years ago I decided to achieve a long-time goal of keeping honeybees. Now, ten years later, I have over 20 hives, market hive and honey products, speak and teach beekeeping to others. When not doing Beekeeping work, I enjoy the outdoors, go hunting, and take in the scenery on an ATV.

My community outreach efforts.

The Arts Castle; Humane Society of Delaware; Andrew’s House; Alpha Group of Delaware; and Alzheimer’s Association of Central Ohio.
