NEW LEADERSHIP DELIVERING RESULTS FOR OUR COMMUNITY
I am married to a wonderful woman and have an awesome son. I grew up hunting and fishing in rural Southeastern Oklahoma in the foothills of the Ozark Mountains. I came from a poor family, so I deeply understand the struggles of life. I joined the Navy as a young man and am currently a disabled Gulf War Veteran. I hold a Master’s degree in Environmental Management and Bachelor’s degrees in Environmental Science, Social Science and Economics. I truly love public service.
I enjoy building and woodworking. I have remodeled my family house including plumbing, landscaping, house construction, decks, retaining walls, gray water systems, you name it. I enjoy playing the guitar and have occasionally made a few musical instruments.
I have spent countless hours building and maintaining hiking trails throughout the Pacific Northwest.
