My hobbies include going to the gym, Skydiving when i get the chance, but most commonly taking my kids to their sporting events. I am a Marine Corps veteran of the gulf war and have been a member in good standing for almost 25 years now. I could not be more proud to be the Business Manager of such a great organisation, and consider myself blessed to have the staff and membership that we have here at the District Council. If I could give one bit of advice it would be to be involved with your UNION, attend the meetings, make yourself heard and help give us direction for our future.

 I am fresh out of the field. I worked 16 years in the field as a painter for three different contractors until elected as a business representative in June 2012. Since then, I've been appointed as a board member on the J.A.C. and a trustee on the pension fund. I have been married for 23 years, my kids are out on their own and I spend any extra time at church and with the grandkids on my horses; we do a lot of trail riding in the Mark Twain National Forest and other national parks.
