Personal Interests
In my spare time, I enjoy sports historical research, sampling barbeque, and attending Wednesday night services and Sunday service at Sheffield Family Life Center.  Kirkpatrick Library on the University of Central Missouri campus, Ellis Library on the University of Missouri-Columbia campus, the downtown St. Louis Library, Gates and Sons Bar-B-Q  at 12th and Brooklyn in downtown Kansas City, and Sheffield Family Life Center are my five favorite spots in the state!
