I started working at Derrick Service International when I was 19 years old. I worked in oil and gas until the business dropped off as the price of oil went into decline. Utilities became a natural fit for my career as I have spent more than half of my life working in water, wastewater, oil, and gas. I have worked in both the public and private sector. I have troubleshooted problems in all kinds of emergency conditions. I have done this at night, on weekends, holidays, in rain, ice, floods, and even tropical storms. I have been called out after hours to solve problems and protect critical infrastructure.

I have received more than 800 classroom hours of training through the Texas Engineering Extension Service of Texas A&M University and other training providers. I have been certified by the Texas Commission of Environmental Quality and have well over 25 years of hands on experience in utilities and the energy sector.

I have lived in the Hill Country and been a PEC member for 19 wonderful years. I have a lovely wife of 23 years and two beautiful daughters.

Recently, I had the privilege of aiding fellow Texans affected by Hurricane Harvey. I helped initially by transporting fuel to the rescue boats. During the recovery phase, I worked with a team from Austin Disaster Relief Network to install tarps on leaky roofs. I plan to partner with them again in the near future in the rebuilding phase. I have helped our community as well by working on a crisis pregnancy center, contributing to Hope House and Operation Liberty Hill. Our family attends Rockpointe Church.

I enjoy outdoor activities around the Highland Lakes, hunting, and working out. I run obstacle races such as the Spartan Race at Reveille Peak Ranch in Burnet, Texas where I also served as a volunteer.

If elected, it will be an honor to serve you in this capacity, and my experience will be an asset to the PEC Board of Directors.
