A Miner Touch of Class

I was born in the beautiful state of Utah. My father was in the military so I was afforded the unique opportunity to travel every 3-4 years. In my youth I lived in Georgia, North Carolina, Germany, Virginia, and Boston MA. I have been married to my lovely wife since 2001, and am blessed with two amazing children. From 2002 until 2009, I served in the U.S. Army at Fort Drum NY with the 10th Mountain Division. I completed one combat tour in Afghanistan for Operation Enduring Freedom VI. I was an NCO responsible for the training and well being of a section of 8 outstaniding soldiers. Due to physical disability, I was medically retired in 2009. While in the Army, a few friends of mine asked if I would help them with their weddings as they had some non-tradtitional ideas. I ended up planning a Star-Wars themed ceremony, a Viking ceremony, and a custom personalized wedding for a couple who went with a more Gothic/Macabre styled ceremony. Currently I am a student at Marshall University working towards a B.A. in Religious Studies with an A.A. in Sociology. I love people and am fascinated with how faith, and lifestyle, causes us to interact with each other. I look forward to continuing my journey in life, while helping you take the first steps on your journey with the love of yours.
