Fun Facts:

I played football and wrestled while in college.  I also coached both football and wrestling when I worked in Parker.  I grew up on a farm with three brothers, so we enjoyed the outdoors, playing as much as we could, and driving any kind of farm equipment.  This is my 15th year living in Arizona and I absolutely love it.
