Personal Life: 
My wife and I celebrated our 25th wedding anniversary this past year and celebrated with a cruise to the Carribean. We are looking forward to the next 25+. I am blessed with two children. Ashley (25) is finishing up her education with aspirations to be an elementary school teacher. My son Nathan (24) is a mechanic working for Hyundai. My son-in-law recently graduated from UNT and is completing his graduate work to work as an occupational therapist. 
I was born in Florida, my high school experience was split between Oklahoma and California, and I moved to Texas in 2013.  
As hobbies, I enjoy electronics, computers, board games, and escape rooms. My wife and I have season tickets with Dallas Summer Musicals and are greatly looking forward to seeing Hamilton in 2019! In the fall, I manage Verdun Manor at the Thrillvania Haunted House Park in Terrell. It is another wonderful opportunity to work with and mentor teens and young adults.
