I was born in 29 Palms, California to a Marine Corps Captain and a school teacher. I was raised in Joplin, Mo. I attended Missouri Southern State College and achieved a B.S. in Biology with Magna Cum Lauda honors. I was voted both an academic and first team All America in football while at Southern. I obtained my MD degree and completed my Orthopedic Residency from the University of Oklahoma Health Sciences Center. I have practiced the majority of my career in small towns and prefer the small town atmosphere over the big city. I live in Guthrie, OK on a small acreage. I enjoy my wife and children and spend as much time with them as I can. I have four, children, Kelsey, a laboratory researcher and cell line administrator, Dylan, who manages the Jimmy John Stores in Stillwater, OK, Jordan, a Sophomore at OU and Jacey, a Junior at Deer Creek. My wife, Dianne, is my office manager, an RN and OPAC and is the cornerstone of the practice and our personal lives. We love to travel in our motor home to national and state parks. I enjoy fishing, biking and being out doors in general. I am a current general aviation pilot and fly a 1959 Navion, model B, regularly. Often our trips coincide with an airshow.
