I have an amazing new baby girl(19 months), Baby Coco(Constance-Mary) we like to call her and a wonderful wife back home. My hobbies include playing with my daughter, bike riding, golf, any outdoor activity and of course, training in the gym.
One interesting fact about me is that I love history, especially, the civil war. So, its welcoming to come to the south and experience this new culture and club.
