    ABOUT ME

  • Japan
  • I have been a machinist, a blacksmith, a Combat Vet Marine Sergeant, a beekeeper, a welder, a carpenter, a brick mason, and whatever else I am forgetting.....

    I am now a craft brewer, a kickboxer/trainer, a proud father of two beautiful girls, a stubborn bull headed husband who never backs off, married to a very patient wife who understands that I am a jack ass for the most part but loves me anyway... I think.

  • I was a beekeeper for a few years, so I plan on sticking to meads and honey spice beers.
