My father, a first generation American taught our family the importance of faith, family and hard work. I took in those lessons and after graduating from high school, joined my father and brothers in the family business. In 1984, I married my wife, Babette. A few years later I continued my education through evening seminary classes. Today we have three children.
My career journey eventually brought me to “A” Company, a Johnson and Johnson company. There I worked as a regional trainer and developed a practice management consulting program called “Residency to Retirement”. My days at Johnson and Johnson opened many doors including the opportunity to come to Texas as Director of Marketing for Apple Orthodontix. In 1999, I fulfilled a life-long dream of full-time ministry when I was ordained as pastor of Family Life Ministries at Fellowship of The Woodlands, now The Woodlands Church. I loved full-time ministry and am grateful for the opportunity that Fellowship gave me, but I realized that God gave me a heart for both the marketplace and ministry.
Today, I run two companies - Acclaim Pools, a design build firm, and My Pool Xpert, a service and repair business. Currently I serve as a teacher and elder at WoodsEdge Community Church and stay involved in the community through board positions with several non-profit organizations.
I have been involved in the Tea Party Movement since its birth. Envisioning the futures of my daughter, (who recently graduated with honors from UT at Austin) and my two sons compelled me to become actively involved in the state’s political process. My wife and I have given a great deal of thought and prayer to my decision to run for the state legislature. We believe it is time for Americans to stand in the gap for our children, our liberties and our future.
