I spend most of my spare time with my wife and daughter, playing music, watching documentaries, or thinking about vacation.

I am in a band with Mr. Bowen, Mr. McClelland, and Mr. White (all teachers at VMHS). Our band name is "Sorry for the Inconvenients". We play a lot of different music. We cover most of our songs, and have a few originals. Some bands we cover are Coldplay, Weezer, Radiohead, Beastie Boys, Run DMC, U2, and many others.
