I was born and raised in Northern Utah in a single parent home. I have 3 older brothers and sports(particularly baseball) have been a big part of our lives. I am married to a wonderful woman, we have 3 beautiful daughters and one son who likes to follow me everywhere. Sports play a big role in my life as a fan and coach. I also have a tremendous love for the outdoors and would prefer to sleep under the stars than in the comfort of my home any day. Fishing, camping, and hiking are passions of mine and love to spend time in gorgeous Southern Utah. My passion for the outdoors allowed me to work with adolescents in the wilderness where I developed a passion for working with youth and families. I love to connect with people and be a part of the process towards making positive life changes.
