I've been tagged by @root_and_ore to do a #10facts post (Yes, Spencer, it was quite a few days ago...but better late than never, right?) Also, this is a good time for me to introduce myself to some new followers who might not know much about me...here it goes:
1. I was born in Tucson, Arizona, but have lived just outside of Jackson, Mississippi for the past 32 years.
2. I backpacked through Europe for 2 weeks with some college friends back in 2005. We went to Luxemburg, France, Germany Belgium and many places in England.
3. [SHAMELESS PLUG] I have a podcast with Drew from @FishersShop and Mark from @Gunflint_Designs called We Built A Thing (@webuiltathing). It's a fun time, talking with those guys about making things, projects, kids and family, video production and more. Give it a listen!
4.My wife and I have 3 lovely kids, Alan, Anne Marie and Alexander...ages 8, 6 and 2. They keep our lives pretty full...full of busy, crazy times, but also full of love and fun.
5. I used to have a 1999 Nissan Maxima SE-Limited in the Crimson Blaze color. It was 1 of about 250 that they ever made like that. It was a manual shift, and I loved that car. I even raced it on a 1/4 mile strip a few times...and did pretty well, for a stock-ish car.
6. When I was about 10, my 5 year old brother and I helped pull a lady out of our lake. She had fallen asleep on the bank, and rolled into the water. She was barely alive when we spotted her.
7. I've been woodworking for quite a few years now, but pretty intensely for the last 5 years or so with many projects. My shop is a large, 2-car garage that now has climate control
8. I started my YouTube channel in January of 2017, and it has been a fun, frustrating, rewarding, journey to grow that. I still enjoy it, and hope to be able to put out even more content in the future.
9. I'm 6'3"+ and I'm the shortest of my brothers.
10. I was a paralegal for almost 2 years. I thought I wanted to go to law school, but that’s not for me
So, that's it! Ask me questions that come to mind or let me know if you can relate to any of these things! Now, I want to know 10 facts about @acnailedit @jb_woodcraft and @jonpeters_
