What first brought you to Alaska:
The military.

How has Alaska captured your heart?
Alaska has captured our hearts for just the outdoor activities and beauty. Just a phenomenal place to live and adventures every day.

Describe just one of your favorite “Best Days” or  “Most memorable experiences”  in Alaska. 
One of our more memorable days has been some of the back country skiing and some of the deepest powder I’ve ever been through.

What in Life do you know for sure?
Boy, what I know in life for sure; very few things. I know that God’s in control. I know that He created us and He’s got a plan for us. Outside of that, who knows?
