    Personal: I have four wonderful children and three grandchildren. My children and grandchildren are my life. My father died at the age of 46 and his passing was a tragic time in my life. Without his wisdom I was lost for many years until I realized I had to try to be the man he wanted me to be for my own children. I was diagnosed as being a Type 2 diabetic in 2002 and almost lost my life on 3 different occasions due to my diabetes. I have fought back and with the help of my family, friends and the doctors and nurses I have some of my health back but it is an everyday struggle. With the creation of Black Diamond Paranormal Society and Within the Chaos it gives my life more meaning to be able to help and give back to so many people.
