I love the outdoors and enjoy activities like cycling, hiking, skiing, flying, golf, and many others. I am also a licensed pilot with a single-engine land rating and enjoy the solitude and serenity of piloting an aircraft high above the hustle and bustle of the world below.

I played college football at the University of Oklahoma under Coach Barry Switzer. My college education resulted in two degrees (Management and Personnel Management) with minors in Aviation Management and Business Law, and honors in English Composition from Oklahoma State University.

Much of my work experience after college was in managing big box retail stores where I learned how to manage people and assets. I gained a great amount of experience in customer service doing everything in my power to satisfy the customer. I retired from retail store management in 2000, got married, and started an investment management company. In 2003, seeing where things were headed with the internet, I transitioned into the work I’m presently doing.

I own my own business, MarketWorx, which I started with my wife in January of 2003.  MarketWorx specializes in web design, online marketing and promotion, local internet marketing, site optimization, facebook fan page design and applications, mobile website design and applications, text message marketing, and qr code creation.

A few years ago, we added an unrelated area to our business (leisure travel). We love to travel and save money at the same time. Visit our site at Travel-Worx.com and you will save money and time…guaranteed. Our site pulls from the two major travel databases. No matter what kind of travel you’re looking for, if it’s offered and available, it will be on our site. Think of the time you’ll save from having to visit mulitiple sites.

I have two boys ages 20 and 5.
