I grew up in Tyler TX, and came to know the Lord at the age of 13 but by the time I was 18 was far far away. I graduated from Ole Miss with an Accounting degree moved to Dallas got my CPA licenses and worked in corporate/financial accounting for 15 years. When I moved back to Tyler, several things happened to lead me back to the Lord and when my job situation changed in 2004, I applied for my current position at Grace and have been here ever since. I am married to my spectacular wife April and we have one son Benjamin. I enjoy mentoring men who are struggling, hunting, and hanging out with family and friends.
