Why I do what I do

Why I do what I do

I chose this career because it’s all about helping others. I help my members plan for a secure financial future.

I serve members in…

central Texas.

I can help you plan for life using a variety of tools, including…

life insurance and annuities.

I enjoy working with…

families, those approaching retirement and small-business owners.

I am very proud of…

earning President's Cabinet, President's Club, Century Club and Million Dollar Round Table over my career of 29-plus years with Modern Woodmen of America.

Before Modern Woodmen, I…

always questioned what the real reason and purpose for my existence, my life, was – and what it would look like to do good.

I chose Modern Woodmen because…

in a dream, God revealed to me I would have a wonderful career. What an amazing journey!

The best part of my career is…

helping our members plan for their futures and protect their families with life insurance and knowing someday, sooner or later, they will know the true value of their membership with Modern Woodmen at the very time they need it most!

A favorite moment in my career was when…

I gained the trust of a soon-to-be client member. It was special knowing they were about to receive a lifetime of value. What a great feeling to always have!


people truly want to have those kinds of relationships from the heart. It goes both ways.

My life outside of work

My family includes…

my beautiful wife of 31-plus years, Lori, who is now a juvenile probation officer; my son, Landon, age 29, who is an electrical engineer; my daughter, age 27, who is a certified nurse midwife and nurse practitioner; and my son, Logan, age 22, who is a nurse. We have also fostered 23 children, several of whom were adopted out. Wow, what a lot of blessings!

In my free time, you can find me…

serving any time we can, or gardening and water gardening.

I’m passionate about…

barbecue – it's a pleasing aroma to God.

My greatest blessing is…

knowing the purpose of our lives and why we are forgiven. Also, my wife asking me to marry her. Thank you, God!

My personal motto is…

to treat others how we would like to be treated. The Golden Rule is here for a purpose. Another favorite motto is Modern Woodmen's creed: There is a destiny that makes us brothers; none goes his way alone; all that we send into the lives of others comes back into our own.

My hidden talent is…

encouragement and laughter, the keys to being positive.

My local community impact

I have lived in my community…

48 years.

What I like best about my community is…

it is always changing and growing, like we have to in life.

I’m a member of…

NAIFA Austin.

My favorite volunteer activities are…

barbecue fundraisers to promote Matching Fund events for many worthwhile organizations or any activities that help those in need.

It’s very important to me to support my community. My favorite Modern Woodmen programs are:

Matching Fund projects to raise money for those in need.

My favorite memory from a fraternal event is…

really adding more and more fraternal events and seeing more and more folks with WOW tattooed on their foreheads – in awe, realizing Modern Woodmen of America, a fraternal financial services organization that's here for members, not for profit, is one of the finest organizations in the industry.


currently I obtained a used $60,000 playscape structure from my neighborhood association. This year, we are conducting several barbecue fundraisers to have it professionally installed in South Austin neighborhood park. Please contact me if you are hungry and want to help the children.
