I am a Texas native, born and raised in Taylor, TX. Growing up, I was part of a close-knit family that taught me a good work ethic and the importance of good morals and values. I graduated from Taylor High School and later graduated from the University of Mary Hardin-Baylor in Belton with a Bachelor of Business. While attending UMHB I also played for the Crusader baseball team for four years and earned such honors as Academic All-Conference and ASC Hitter of the Week. I am also currently a Professional Fire Fighter/Paramedic serving the city of Killeen and its residents. I now have a fantastic home in Florence, TX where I live with my wonderful wife, Brandy and amazing son, Hagan. My current hobbies include spending time with my family, staying active with exercise, traveling, and enjoying various outdoor activities.
