I was born with Osteo Genesis Imperfecta.   It is a brittle bone disease that affected mainly my legs.   I spent much of my childhood at Shriners Hospital in Portland, Oregon undergoing operation to try and straighten my bones and be able to walk.   At eighteen years old I pointedly asked the doctors if I would ever walk and they said no, so I asked them to cut my legs off.   Within weeks I was swimming, riding quads, went to college in the fall.... I gained my freedom to become the man I am today.

In 1987 I rolled a racing wheelchair from Portland, Oregon to New York City.    

I returned to my hometown after college and bought the family grocery store and then added firearms and hunting gear to the inventory,    I moved to the family farm we have had since 1922.    I set about to rebuild all the fallen down fences and delapidated buildings.    Today, it is a beautiful place and it has all been a labor of love.    I married Debbie in September of 2008.    She is incredible and I am glad that I waited to marry the best.

Getting older now and I don't run through the brush like I did twenty years ago but I still get-r-done.
