I was born in Concord, California, and grew up in small town (Pine Grove, CA, and Sutter Creek, CA) near Tahoe in the Sierra Nevada mountains. I enjoyed growing up with lots of open space to explore and play outdoors. I attended college at Biola University in La Mirada, CA for two years and then graduated from California State University, Sacramento with my B.S. in Biology.
I married my wife, whom I met in high school, just before finishing my undergraduate degree. We then moved to Omaha, Nebraska so I could attend Creighton University School of Dentistry. We bought a small old house and enjoyed renovating it while attending dental school.
After graduation, we decided to move to the Seattle area to be closer to family. We settled into Maple Valley and enjoyed becoming a part of the community for 18 years. We loved the small-town atmosphere in Black Diamond and Maple Valley, Things changed in Washington and we decided to relocate to a free state.My family relocated in June of 2021 to Nampa to attend and work at Nampa Christian High School. I was able to sell my two dental practices in 2022 and reunited with my family.
We have two children, Ethan and Anna. I enjoy spending time with my family, riding dirt bikes, gardening on our property, and being active in my church.
