I was born in Globe, Arizona but grew up in the San Francisco area. After living overseas for several years I returned to the US attend college at the University of California, Berkeley. After college, I entered the US Army and served as an officer in the Infantry and Intelligence for 30 years. During my career, I served in France, Belgium, Viet Nam and Greece. I also acquired a Masters Degree from the University of Arizona while in the Army.
In 2006 my wife Diana and I purchased the Bar X ranch near Young, Arizona. With help from groups like Arizona Mule Deer and Arizona Game and Fish, we have managed to build a viable, sustainable cattle operation. One of the reasons we love the lifestyle we have is the pleasure we derive from seeing the best of Arizona’s wildlife on a daily basis. Arizona Mule deer efforts will improve the habitat for all wildlife in Arizona, and that is why I am proud to be a part of this organization.
