    12. Bc4 Rf6
    13. Rd1 Nd7
    14. Qd6+ Ke8
    15. Bxe6 Qb6
    He said right about now that it was over...so he might as well swing for the fences
    16. Bxd7+ Kf7
    17. Qd4 Qxd4
    18. cxd4 Rd8
    19. Bg4 Rf4?

    21. Nh3 Rf6
    22. Nxg5 Kg6
    23. e6 Rf4
    24. Ne7 Rxf3
    25. Nxd8---and thats essential it...from there i chased him for 13 moves around the board...checkmating the king on f4.

    Opinions...where he could have done better earlier on...where I could have done better?

    To make it easy for people to look at your game try using pgn format. Tags are [Tagname "tagcontent"] and {comments go in curly brackets}

    The moves 23. e6 and 24 Ne7 are illegal, I assume you meant 23. e5 and 24. Ne6.

    It looks like you played it more or less the right way.
