Hometown: Cape Girardeau, Missouri
College: University of Missouri, Columbia, Missouri

About me: I am a Midwestern transplant to the desert and I love the Scottsdale area! My wife and our two-year-old daughter have a blast visiting the zoo and aquarium, and we love watching the many sports teams here in the Valley. We enjoy camping trips to the nearby higher elevations of the Mogollon Rim or Flagstaff to escape the heat during the summer or just experimenting with the endless list of fantastic restaurants in the Phoenix/Scottsdale area. For a relaxing weekend, I love to barbeque (I have three grills and take it pretty seriously), while spending time with friends around the pool or playing pickleball year-round!
