My family and I are originally from Washington State but we moved to Pahrump in 1998 so I could pursue my teaching career. I have been married to my beautiful and amazing wife, Holly, for 20 years. Holly has been a very hard working self-employed cosmetologist for 20 years as well, right here in Pahrump, currently at Bella's Salon. I have been employed with Nye County School District for 19 years, 17 years as a seventh grade science teacher and the past two years as a S.T.E.M. teacher at R.C.M.S.

We have a wonderful family including our daughter Alexis, 24, who lives in Seattle, Washington with her soon-to-be husband, Daniel Rich. Our 20 year old twin boys, Jace and Jaxon, are both currently in the military, Jace is in the Army as a Calvary Scout deployed in Kuwait and Jaxon is in the Air Force in weapons for the A-10 Wart Hog currently deployed in Osan, South Korea. On October 25th, 2010, Holly and I adopted, Dane Joseph, on his 4th birthday. Dane is 10 years old now and attends the 4th grade at Floyd Elementary School.
