About

Howdy,
I'm originally from Round Rock, Tx (just north of Austin). I'm a 2011 graduate of Texas A&M University in College Station(Whoop!). I love to be outside and to share that passion with my family and friends. I have a 4 year old son, Dylan, who loves to be outside, explore, play soccer, and disc golf. I also have a 16 month old named Hunter, who enjoys watching his big brother play and exploring his surroundings. My wife of 8 years, Jennifer, loves to watch college football and play with our boys.
