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 went to 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 began my love for the Bell County area. I am also currently a Professional Fire Fighter/Paramedic serving the city of Killeen and its residents. I now have a fantastic home in Salado, TX where I live with my wonderful wife, Brandy and two amazing sons, Hagan and Brody. My current hobbies include spending time with my family, staying active with exercise, traveling, and enjoying various outdoor activities.
