I love doing hair. I never feel like what I do for a living is work. I love the outdoors, mountain biking, road biking, rock climbing, backpacking, camping in the mountains, surfing and snowboarding. I am a huge college football fan, and I love the Florida Gators! I am into motorcycles, photography, and graphic arts.
My amazing son Grayson, my two dogs Gunner and Zeke, and my Harley Davidson.
