Never left.

Favorite things to do in Guthrie are taking family out to eat, going to Cedar Valley and playing golf, and going to the YMCA.

If someone asked you why they should move to Guthrie, what would your answer be? 

Its such a unique town, Red Brick Nights, 89ers, give it a try. I believe anyone can call it home.

We know Guthrie is awesome but tell us one thing you would change about it?

I wouldn't change a thing about Guthrie.

Anything significant about your life you would like to share?

In 39 years of life, I've seen many good times as well as many bad. I spent many years looking out my rear view mirror and when I wasn't looking in that mirror, I was looking through the windshield. I now try to focus in on what's in the car and not worry about what's in the past or what's in store for tomorrow.

Long term goal for me is to be the best I can until midnight and do it again the next day. Good things happen if you live in the moment. Christ can/will change your life!    

Anything else you would like to add?

I have the most amazing wife and children. God is good and we are blessed!
