In my humble beginnings, I worked for Ford Motor Company for six years, before serving 24 years in the U.S. Air Force. While in service, I worked in several diverse positions such as: an aircraft electrician, training manager for the Defense Language Institute, where I counseled international students from all over the world, to Maintenance Operations Superintendent for the 46th Test Wing. After settling in Okaloosa County, I have been a member of Niceville High School All School Booster Club for over 20 years— Football Program Committee, and Vice-Chairman Niceville Planning Commission – 2016 – 2020.
My wife and Queen, Jocelyn, and I have been married since 1980. We have four sons, 11 grandchildren, and we are truly blessed.
