I was born and raised in a little diamond in the Carribean known as St. Croix, U.S. Virgin Islands. Upon graduating from HS, I moved to the US mainland (NYC and then NJ) where I met, married, and have been living with the inspiration of my life, Maribel, for the past 25 yrs. as of 08/24/18. We have three amazing and super talented kids, Gabriel, Joshua, and Joanna. I have served as a Children minister alongside my wife for over 20 yrs. and I am currently serving as an Associate Pastor in my local church (River of Life AG). My hobbies include: blogging, decorating, designing, and wire art. I should have mentioned this first, but as you may have already noticed (by my blog), I am also a lighthouse aficionado.
