BIOGRAPHY

I was born in Henderson, Nevada ... and if you don’t know where that is, it’s about 15 minutes just outside Sin City ... so, if you’re a betting person I would bet on me... lol! I was the youngest of 4 kids, and we moved to Magna, Utah where I graduated from Cyprus High School and then went to the University of Utah to play baseball.

After College, I joined the US Air Force where I served as a medic and surgical tech. This is where I met my wife as a 21 year old Airman back in 1986 ... and 33 years later we finally got married in September of 2019. During that time we have had 3 stellar sons, DJ, Brenden, and Kyle, all of which I am insanely proud of. I then, left the service and went on to run my own concrete company, and finally moved up here to Boise where I am now rocking it in warehousing and shipping here at SOLV. I am super happy to be here and I am excited for what my future holds!
