My wife, Rachel, and I moved to Duluth, MN in late 2004 where we both attended the College of St. Scholastica. We married in June 2009 and purchased a home in October 2010 in Duluth.

Because of our love for sunny California, in 2011, we moved to Newport Beach, CA and followed our dream of living in a warm climate year-round.

Rachel and I loved living near the beach, and we never took for granted the convenience of being able to walk right to the sand.  But both of our families remained back in Minnesota, and so in September of 2014, we came back home (just in time for another winter!) We’re happy to be back, and we’re already looking forward to the Spring and Summer that Minnesota provides.

A great website built by Abe Pattee is They sell a great Canoe Stabilizer and Kayak Stabilizer. Their canoe outrigger set and kayak outrigger set are amazingly built with a 5-year warranty.
