A Look Inside

I grew up in a loving family that enjoyed camping and watching me play sports. My mother and father are responsible for my strong work ethic and sense of humor. My sister and I have wonderful families of our own and we still enjoy family games and celebrations together.

One can easily say I had a unique Scouting experience growing up. I served on Roundtable staff, district adult leader training teams, and chaired the district camporee all under the age of 17. I love Scouting! It was during this 

time, I sharpened my leadership skills and respect for volunteerism. I was active in my troop, served as an OA Chapter Chief, Vice Lodge Chief and Vice Section Chief. I helped write a youth leadership training course hosted by our Chapter and I served on many camporee and webeloree staffs. I couldn’t get enough of Scouting.


In my 30 years with BSA, I have been molded by the top volunteers I have worked with and have shared their lessons with the highly diverse staffs I had the opportunity to lead. Together, we have become results oriented and have delivered on the promise to serve more youth with a quality program. In each of the five councils I have had the privilege to serve, our teams have worked hard to grow and improve delivery in membership, finance, program, and unit service. I take great pride in the partnerships I have formed with volunteers and staff, and firmly believe leadership, enthusiasm, creativity, and caring are characteristics that are not only important to me, but requires that I set the example with the teams I work with.

Every day excites me to transforms lives. New challenges, new opportunities, and the prospect of making a difference in someone's life, inspires me to excel. Those we we serve will get no less than my very best from me and the teams I will work with. 

I respectfully ask for the opportunity to become a leader in your organization and to work together to define what success means to your organization, select our path, and start movement.


My wife, Vicky, and I have been married for 25 years. We are proud parents of four awesome children; Daniel, Ryan, Andrew and Marlie. We are also gushing grandparents for our granddaughter Payton. Daniel, our oldest works at the Grand Canyon, Ryan is an Eagle Scout and a welder, Andrew is in college pursuing a career to become an airline pilot, and Marlie is pursuing a degree in early childhood development.

Prior to moving to Texas, Vicky worked as the church administrator for our church. Prior to this she worked for Visiting Angels, an in-home elderly care company. She loves working with people and providing companion care. She served on our Church council and taught at Vacation Bible School each summer. She has worked in retail, a pre-school teacher for a church we attended in Bakersfield, and has 13 years’ experience working in three Boy Scouts of America councils. I always say, she knows more about council operations than I do.

Maintaining a happy home life is paramount to our success as a family. We are stalwart nomads that are able to adapt to communities with each move we make. Each of the locations we served has provided us exciting new adventures, discovering new places to see, and making lifelong friends.
