I have a passion for serving the Lord.  It is the constant in my life and enables me to be a person of excellence in every area of my life.  The principles I have learned and practice, the fellowship and personal relationship I have with the Lord are foundational to everything in my life.


I have a passion for serving others, especially friends and family.  My wife and I share an ideal relationship and we love to love on friends and family.  I believe that giving of your time, talents and resources to others makes my life full.  Whether it is cooking a meal, providing advice, being a listening ear, or just spending time anything I can do to serve another is something I am passionate about.


I have a passion for golf.  I developed a love of golf late in life, in my fifties.  It is something that gives me a respite from the day to day task that seem to never end. It also gives me the opportunity to visit some of the most beautiful places every created around the country.

"I've known Everett since 2002 in USS VICKSBURG (CG 69) and remained in contact with him throughout his career. Everett has been a strong leader and thinker on information systems early on with the latest Navy technology entering the fleet. He has maintained a continued level of education and maintained a continued level of certifications; a great asset then and a great asset today. I trust Everett completely in getting the job done, on time and with high quality."

Daniel's Blessing
See Website:

Daniel’s Blessing is an organization with a focus on service to children. The organization was founded after the massive earthquake in Haiti and has been making routine visits to that country to bring relief and comfort to the children of Haiti.  They also advocate for children here in the United States to ensure they are receiving well-rounded life skills and opportunity.

Watching Daniel’s Blessing in action is motivating and inspires others to get involved in the lives of our children.  I have seen first hand what the personal attention and caring has done for children in their self-esteem, expansion of their goals and desires and overall attitude about life.  Daniel’s Blessing is a much-needed entity in today’s society and their work will definitely reap benefits in the future.
