I have been a model railroader for nearly 50 years. I received my first HO train set from Santa at the age of 10. I have built 5 layouts as an adult; 2 of which were in N-scale. My wife, Jennifer, and I have been married for 26 years and have three children. By profession, I am a lower school STEM instructor (science-technology-engineering-mathematics) which brings me more joy, excitement and enthusiasm than any other aspect of my life. My other interests include playing the piano and anything related to Walt Disney World which we visit at least once a year (March 2018 marked my 25th visit).
