Passion and Persistence


Originally from West Texas 

I  joined the United States Marine Corps after graduating from High School.  

Early on in my career as a Marine I was recognized as future leader and I was selected to become a United States Marine Corps Officer!

Marine Corps

I was commissioned a Marine Second Lieutenant.

After completing Officer Candidate School (OCS) and graduating from University of Arizona with a Bachelor of Science degree, I was commissioned a Marine Second Lieutenant.  As an officer I served overseas in Okinawa, Korea, Thailand, and Iraq.  After serving honorably for over fifteen years, I decided to settle down in Northern Virginia with my family.


Iraqi Freedom

I served.

As a Marine Corps Officer, I deployed for Operation Iraqi Freedom.  This time in my Marine Corps career taught me the importance of family and working with people you trust.


I value spending time with my family

Coming from a close knit family, I know the value of spending quality time and sharing experiences with those you love.  I enjoy spending time with my wife and sons exploring the local sites.

I prepare for most days with physical activity.  

After over 30 years of running, I have completed six marathons and countless half marathons.  Annually I participate in local runs to stay in shape.

My most recent accomplishment was running for 453 consecutive days!
