I value the importance of family and am thankful that I am able to be active in my family’s life. My wife Michelle and I married in 1995 and have three wonderful children: Emma (1999), Evan (2001), and Ella Claire (2005).
I believe balance in life is very important. I strive to have continuous growth in my life physically, mentally, financially and spiritually. I enjoy a daily workout routine, hiking as a hobby, lifelong continuous education, owning and operating an important business that took years of sacrifice to build, all while staying active in my Church and giving God the thanks He deserves.
I believe maintaining a positive mental attitude, taking persistent action, learning from mistakes and successes and maintaining gratitude for the gifts and talents one is given presents individuals the power to achieve dreams and goals.

- Cum Laude Bachelor Degree from Western KY University in 1993
