My grand goal in life: To inspire and educate others on how to improve their community and be godly leaders while maintaining a loving and strong family.
When not working, I: Spending time with my family and animals, reading, gaming, working out and volunteering.
What I like most about living in Ocala: The people, I’ve been all over the country and I’d be hard-pressed to find another place with people with hearts as big as the ones here. People care.
My biggest pet peeve: Tardiness
One word that summarizes my philosophy of life: Service, from my time in the military to a personal trainer and currently the community works I’m involved with. My life has been a life of service.
My greatest strength is: My faith fuels and is embedded in all that I do. My faith keeps me grounded and striving to be a good steward.

Favorite part of my profession: Inspiring and guiding youth to be the best version of themselves and instilling much-needed values.
If there is one thing I indulge too much in: Friendly debates, I learn a lot from them and it keeps my mind sharp, but time-consuming.
Top three things on my bucket list: 1. Climb Mt. Killamanjaro with my family. 2. Create a successful/replicable blueprint that uplifts struggling communities. 3. Earn my pilot’s license.
