I have served my community as a Cub Scout Pack Master, Cub Scout Den Leader and on the Boy Scout Eagle Scout Review Committee. I also served our country for eight years as an officer in the US Marine Corps, attaining the rank of Major. I currently enjoy coaching YMCA youth soccer, basketball and baseball. I am an avid SCUBA diver and hold professional accreditation as a SCUBA Divemaster and Assistant Instructor. As a member of The Ark church in Conroe I practice my faith regularly.
