Eddie Vendetti lives in Maryland with his wife and four children. Vendetti is an aspiring artist who describes his work as surreal oil painting on canvas. A devout Catholic, Vendetti expresses his devotion to his faith by writing spiritual poetry to accompany his paintings. He attended the University of Maryland in College Park from 1987 to 1991 and graduated with a degree in Fine Arts. Presently, Vendetti works full time for Leidos as a Systems Engineer and is employed part time as a pilot for Brandebury Tool Co. He uses flying to gain a better visual perspective of natural objects and terrain features to help him paint things like lakes and mountains. "I have a lot that I try to do in my life - four kids, the jobs, my art, and I play some musical instruments. I have a lot of things I feel moved to do", Vendetti said. "But, no matter what I'm doing, I try to remain focused on loving God and neighbor as Christ taught us."
