I’m married with children…married for 17 years to Mandy and have three amazing kids who take up all of my time, and I love it. Professionally, I’m a Certified Public Accountant and Certified Internal Auditor. I work for the Oklahoma Health Care Authority as an Project Planner.
I was born in Davenport, Iowa but call Broken Arrow, Oklahoma my home town. I had the privilege of going to Broken Arrow K-12 before attending Southern Nazarene University. I majored in Marketing, which was a clear indication I didn’t know what I wanted to do with my life. I spent three years on the staff of the school newspaper, THE ECHO, and was sports editor for two years. If I could do it over again, I might have stuck with journalism. After SNU, I earned an MBA from Oklahoma University and then entered the workforce.
I’ve had jobs as a bond analyst, finance manager, accountant, auditor and currently and a Planning Coordinator for the Oklahoma Health Care Authority.
Wife Mandy is a physical therapist and my 3 kids are very active in basketball, singing, and baseball.
