I grew up in Springfield, MO, where I met my wife Kari and where all 3 of my children were born. I received my undergraduate and Master’s Degree at Missouri State University. Since 2019, I have been serving in the role of Director of Facilities Planning and Operations for OSF HealthCare’s North Region. I live in Love’s Park. In my free time I enjoy running, fishing, playing piano and traveling for my daughter’s competitive dance team.
