I’ve been called many things, but Dad is my favorite! “Perpetual Improvement” is my personal mission statement. My goal is to improve every person, organization, and project that I’m involved with.
My wife Becca and I went to school in the small town of LaPlata, MO (population 1,192 in 2020), and we each lived 10 miles from that. However, we’ve called Arizona, Maryland, Missouri, Germany, and South Korea home over the last 17+ years I’ve been in the Army.
Kansas City has a special place in our hearts though. We lived in Pleasant Valley and North Kansas City for a little over 3 years. We fell in love with the KC lifestyle and can’t wait to get back there. Our favorite souvenir from KC is our son, Owen!
I’m into anything with pistons like motorcycles and chainsaws, making home-made wine and beer (Hefeweizen for me please!), hunting and fishing, camping, and Scouting. I enjoy long, slow runs or hikes as well. I was born to solve problems and create. My son and I love to build with LEGO together as well. Ask me about the “Rainbow Death Star.”
I have a burning passion for helping people with their finances. I am a natural spender and that got us in some tight spots when my wife and I were younger (ever have to put rent on a credit card?). I can still remember sitting in a cold (yes, cold) tent in Afghanistan looking at bank statements – that’s how you know I was bored. I realized that I was going to pay nearly as much interest on my truck as it would have cost me to buy my old truck (which I loved) in cash. I knew we had to change.
