Why I Chose Education as My Second Career of Choice
To further the great message of Robert Frost:  “Education is the ability to listen to almost anything without losing your temper or your self-confidence.”

Personal Interests
In my spare time I enjoy playing golf, our KC Chiefs season tickets, traveling to just about any beach with my wife and keeping tabs on our two sons.
