Christian, husband, father, entrepreneur. I’ve lived in Castle Rock since 2011. Originally from Michigan, I moved to Colorado in 2004. I have 1 son and 2 stepdaughters.

I love to write, read, spend time with my family and friends whenever I can. I felt that I lost my purpose after my near-death experience in the military that led to my retirement from the Air Force. I found my purpose with the Dads of Castle Rock and feel an incredible amount of pride to be able share my passion of helping people with a community of incredible dads.

I moved to Castle Rock after meeting my wife and two wonderful step kids in 2013. I joined DoCRCO because I love being a part of an organization that can make a difference within the community we live in. Seeing how a bunch of dads and families can come together to make positive outcomes a reality for many is a real blessing.
Director Of Events
I moved to Castle Rock to get the small-town feel close to Denver where a good chunk of my Real Estate business is. This town did not disappoint! I can’t go out to eat or to the grocery store without seeing somebody I know! I joined the Dads of Castle Rock to meet other dads, get advice from other dads and to get to know the community better! When the opportunity to become part of the Community Outreach presented itself, I couldn’t get involved fast enough! This is a great town, but we as a group saw an opportunity to make it even better by doing “dad stuff” in the community. Small things like helping people move furniture, cleaning up trails and collecting Christmas trees, but also big things like making sure every kid in town had a good Christmas, ensuring that struggling neighbors never went hungry and helping families in the community when they are in need. We all love this town and want to make sure Castle Rock is a great place to live for years to come!
