I graduated from McAlester High School in 1997 and went to the University of Tulsa as a scholarship athlete for Football. After playing at TU, I received a music scholarship to the University of Central Oklahoma for music. I graduated in 2002 with a Bachelor’s degree in Music Education. I earned my Master of Educational Administration from Southern Nazarene University in 2012. In the future, plan to continue my education culminating in a Doctorate of Education.
My wife, Angela, and I were married in 2002. Shortly after our wedding, we began to serve as foster parents while we grew our family. We currently have eight children ranging from 17 to 1. We have served over 20 foster children over the past decade and may serve more in the years to come.
