About Me:

NEW!! Please visit my blog site:

And of course, feel free to send me a friend request on Facebook:

I'm currently living in Kentucky spending a lot of time studying. For a year and a half from 2008 through 2009 I volunteered as Outreach Director for a publishing ministry in Michigan. I hold a Bachelor of Arts (2006) from The University of Findlay (Ohio) with a double major in Criminal Justice Administration, and Law and the Liberal Arts. At UF I was the senior class president and a newspaper columnist, and throughout the past decade I have worked in law enforcement, legislative affairs, and volunteered on political campaigns. My parents homeschooled me K-12, and they continue to minister to and encourage families across the country.

I have been a pianist since I was 4 years old. It wasn't really that hard to learn since my mother is a piano teacher. At my university I was active for over 2 years with a Christian praise band as a keyboardist and co-leader, and in 2008 I helped to organize a praise band at the HSA Reunion.

I am a certified private pilot. I earned my license in April 1999, and it was one of the most exciting days of my life. I have flown the Piper Archer, Cessna 172 Skyhawk, Cessna 152 and 150, and Piper Tomahawk. From the time I was little, I always wanted to fly. When I was around 5 or 6 years old, I bought myself a plane ride at a fair for $5.00. Want to know more about flying? Visit

I am a licensed amateur radio operator. Want to know more about the Amateur Radio Service, a.k.a. ham radio? Check out the Wikipedia article on Ham Radio.

Favorite Quotes:
Show me your ways, O LORD,
teach me your paths;
guide me in your truth and teach me,
for you are God my Savior,
and my hope is in you all day long.

~ Psalm 25:4,5

The man that God will use has to be faithful to one purpose, one calling and one destiny.
~ Sunday Adelaja

"All airplanes fly better with two pilots."

Favorite Books: 

Vienna Prelude by Bodie Thoene, was a book I read when I was young teenager, and it stuck with me. I highly recommend reading this historical fiction from the Thoenes. It makes you feel like you've lived through World War II.

Favorite Music: 

I like some of just about everything. Different musical styles represent different backgrounds and different stories. It's fascinating to learn why people make the music they do. I grew up with a lot of classical music and in recent years have played a fair amount of contemporary Christian worship music.

Good counter-question. I don't know the answer to that one.

But as to the original question, the particular ship is a little irrelevant; the answer to the original is, "America."
