Personal Highlights

When I am not at work, I am spending time with my family. I have a beautiful wife of 8 years and one son. They make everything possible for me, and they challenge me to be a better person every day. I wouldn’t be where I’m at today without their support. We like to cook out and relax on our patio, but most of all we enjoy traveling and seeing the world. I love to play golf as much as I can with my brothers and my dad. I enjoy playing several golf courses around the area!

Personal Highlights

When I’m not working, I am spending time with my small circle of friends, or my son. My family doesn’t live close so we don’t see each other as much. I am a single father of a 22 year old son who I am extremely proud of! I enjoy going to outdoor shows, and almost anything music, or comedy related. Definitely a foodie. I appreciate the opportunity to be a part of the Heart of America family and I look forward to the journey.

I enjoy spending time in the gym. Some may say I’m a gym rat. I also love attending my kids afterschool and sport activities. I started my lawn maintenance and removal service in 2018. Being busy is like second nature.
