I am helping people pursue their dreams of flying at Coast Flight Training.
I was the Director of Digital Media for GreenFox Marketing in Granbury, Texas. I helped create innovative marketing solutions for customers.
I was the Production Lead for StoneWater Church, at the main campus, in Granbury, Texas. As the Production Lead, I ensured that the technology and production aspect of weekend services help support, enhance, and do not distract from the vision of leadership.

Life Outside of Work
The most dangerous risk of all:
the risk of spending your life not doing what you want
on the bet you can buy the freedom to do it later.
I love flying. I grew up going to Air Shows with my family. My dad worked for an aerospace company. As a professional pilot and flight instructor, I still enjoy sharing my passion and excitement for flying with the next generation.
Best part of a concert is the visual production. I enjoy designing lighting rigs for churches and events. I frequently try out various lighting consoles. I love programming lights with MSC or Timecode.
Working out is a priority. I loved doing Physical Training at Dallas Police Academy. We did Crossfit before it was mainstream. I am currently enjoying a 5-day weight lifting routine.
I am very DIY. I have built a lot of furniture, including an entertainment center, bed frame, and several large office desks. I remodeled a 36' 5th Wheel RV and an old house. I enjoy working on my vehicles and not afraid to get my hands dirty to tinker with something.
I enjoy being outside. I enjoy fishing from a kayak. I grew up riding BMX in the neighborhood and jumping homebuilt ramps. I mountain biked and occasionally hit a moderate trail. I used to go camping regularly when I was a Boy Scout.
I like to try out new technology. From computers and periphials, to operating systems and programming languages, I like to tinker with technology to see what I can get it to do. I enjoy learning how to utilize new tools to improve a system or process.
My #1 strength is found in my Saviour, Jesus Christ. I am thankful to have a relationship with a God who is always with me, even through the times I am least Christ-like.
I can do all things through Him who strengthens me.
My #2 strength is my wife. I met Janie, in 2006, while working for her mom at a church; we got married in 2009. I have seen her transform from a cute girl to a beautiful woman. She supports me with most of my crazy ideas, but isn't afraid to reign me in when needed.
Charm is deceitful, and beauty is vain, but a woman who fears the Lord is to be praised.
In Memory of
Jackson Theodore Latimer
So also you have sorrow now, but I will see you again, and your hearts will rejoice, and no one will take your joy from you.
On June 28, 2016, at 12:12 am, Jackson Theodore Latimer was born to Janie and me at 1 lb. 1 oz. and 11 in. A few hours later, Jackson was born into Heaven because of bilateral multi-cystic dysplastic kidney (MCDK).
