After growing up on a ranch in the sandhills, I graduated highschool and immediately joined the US Army. I served proudly for 5 years as a Military Police Officer. When my time in the service was over, I returned home and helped my parents with the ranch, worked with troubled youth and continued my law enforcement career. I took a short break from law enforcement with a 4 year run working for Union Pacific Railroad. I missed working in the community and with people, so I rejoined law enforcement for the next 9 years. Most recently I went back to the railroad life running trains for BNSF. I again missed working in the community so acquired my real estate license. I am a father of 3 absolutely amazing children and chasing them with all of their activities is one of my favorite hobbies!
