Christian. Husband. Father. Son. Brother. Friend. Attorney. Reader. Writer. Hiker. Libertarian. Lover of life.

I spent the first eighteen years of my life in Bismarck, ND, and the last twenty in Oklahoma City.

I have a B.S. in Exercise Science from Southern Nazarene University and a J.D. from Oklahoma City University School of Law.  

I’m a proud member of Oklahoma City First Church of the Nazarene and a big fan of Jesus, family time, good books, juicy burgers, southern BBQ, dinner parties, people in the arena,* documentaries, not having cable TV, political discussions, Ron Paul, physical activity, and my Honda Civic. 


*It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat. – Theodore Roosevelt
