Tell us a little bit about yourself: I’m 36 years old, come from the same small town as Casey in Northwestern Missouri, Braymer, and I have lived there until February of this year. I moved to Corder, an even smaller town that my wife is from, located in mid-western Missouri. My wife Charity is a Chief Deputy Juvenile Officer and I have two daughters Zoey, age 6, and Sydnee age 4. We are dog people with a seven year old Cocker Spaniel, Tucker, and a year and half old Lab puppy named Daisy.

What is your most treasured possession? I am unsure of my favorite possession, but my wife would probably say it’s my phone!
What did you want to be when you grew up: As a child I wanted to be an Architectural Engineer. Designing buildings and things seem like less work and more fun back then.
What’s your favorite thing about your job? My Favorite Thing about my job is the sense of satisfaction of seeing a job done well.
What is one thing you couldn’t live without? I probably couldn’t live without my phone. I guess my wife is probably right about that one.
