Welcome E-link Readers.

Welcome to my blog.

If you are reading this, there is an excellent chance that you read an article from Sovereign’s e-link article about me and clicked on a link that led you here.. I wrote this blog so you’d know just a little bit more about me. Many of you I may never have the opportunity to meet in person so I thought I’d give a quick introduction on the blog.

I am 29 years old. My wife, Rhiana, and I live in Warwick, Rhode Island. We met three and a half years ago and just got married in June of 2006. We have two Labrador retrievers, Buca (black) and Kayla (chocolate) that are both rescued shelter dogs. We enjoy riding bikes, taking our dogs to the beach, cooking, and spending time with Rhiana’s family.

Most of my family lives in Indiana. My mother still lives in my hometown of Columbus, Indiana with her husband and my grandmother. My father lives in Greenwood, Indiana with his wife.

I have two sisters. My older sister, Wendy, lives in Flagstaff, Arizona. Last fall, she moved there from Cambridge leaving the hustle and bustle of Boston for the relaxed and laid back life of the Southwest. She is a CPA working for Northern Arizona University. My younger sister, Lesley, lives in Indianapolis and is a counselor for a Hospice-like care organization.

I was born and raised in basketball country. Columbus, Indiana is a small mostly blue collar town of about 30,000 residents. It is famous for it’s amazing architecture in a small setting. Columbus is also well known for being the home of Cummins Engine Company (the maker’s of the Dodge Ram diesel engine.) Famous names that share Columbus with mine as their hometown are:

Chuck Taylor- the basketball shoe guy.

Tony Stewart - the current reigning champion of NASCAR.

Jamie Hyneman - the Mythbusters guy.

Here are few quick facts that would help you get to know me:

I have joined the millions that have been sucked in to Myspace. Feel free to “add me” as a friend.

I just pushed shuffle on my I-pod…these are the first five songs that came up:

King Nothing by Metallica
New York, New York by Ryan Adams
If I Had It All by Dave Matthews
Where’d You Go by Fort Minor
Dirt Of f Your Shoulders by Jay-Z

I can ride motorcycles.

I can play the trumpet, baritone, and euphonium.

I like the Indiana Hoosiers, Indianapolis Colts, and Indiana Pacers.

My left eye is two colors. It is green with a brown birthmark.

A little more about me and my career:

I have worked with Sovereign for nearly 4 years.

I am an Assistant Vice President with the Auto Finance Division.

My first job in banking was as a receptionist with a small credit union.

In closing I’d like to say “Thanks” for visiting my blog. I apologize there is not a whole lot written lately. After the wedding we’ve spent a lot of time getting settled into our home and enjoying life after the big day.
Thanks again.
