Born and raised in SoCal, I cut my teeth on the beaches in Orange County (OC). Back then, it was a sleepy beach town we called the HB, but to the rest of the world, it is known as Surf City USA. During my elementary school years, we lived across the street from the beach at lifeguard station #16. I know what you are thinking, really! Yes, it was rough, having your back yard as Surf City USA, but someone had to do it.
Because of our fallen nature as decedents of Adam, my family was dysfunctional, to say the least. During Jr high, I attended Southern California Military Academy in Signal Hill, CA. During my freshman year of high school, we moved although we stayed in the OC, we moved inland to Anaheim. Yes, I went to Disneyland a lot, and I still do.
After graduating from high school, I joined the US Navy. They taught me how to cook, and I have seen a good portion of the planet we call home.

I accepted the Lord as my Savior on September 14th, 1994. Let’s just say that I know the difference between the Light and darkness. I was saved out of the darkness and into the Glorious Light, by the grace and power of Jesus Christ, my Lord.
