We moved to the Barton Creek West Community in 2014 because of the school district. We have lived in the district since then, other than the Fall semester of 2019. After realizing that my kid’s education and development was far more important to me than my career out of state, we moved back in January 2020 for the Spring semester. Having seen the disastrous effect of a school board without strong leaders, I have a particular interest in serving on the Eanes ISD Board and seeing success for Eanes ISD.
Rhonda and I are involved in our community, serving on several boards including Hill Country Pop Warner Football and Cheer and the Avery Project (at risk boys). We are also members of Austin Ridge Bible Church.

I am a pragmatic business leader who understands how to grow revenue and balance budgets with organizations structure and needs.
My 27 years in the business world has taught me skill sets that I will apply to make sure we have excellence in Eanes. I am a pragmatic problem solver and critical thinker. I am approachable and level-headed. I take criticism and consider others’ points of view before making decisions. I strive to be a servant leader. I have a heart for the underdog, our most vulnerable. I am particularly passionate about helping kids. My son, Ashton, is on the Autism Spectrum. He has taught me a lot of things and I feel blessed to have him as my son.
My time being involved in and President of Westlake Pop Warner Football and Cheer has given me an appreciation of our community and the diversity of the people who live here. I love football and what is does to help grow our boys into young men. There are so many life lessons that are taught on and off the field that we should also expect in our Eanes Trustees: hard work, perseverance, grit, relationships, being selfless, doing your job, and respecting those working next to you. Having an absentee dad growing up, my surrogate dads were my coaches and teachers. They taught me many things. I know the importance of having good role models.
I am a problem solver. I am currently the President of Hill Country Pop Warner that has 15 chapters with over a thousand kids in the program throughout the greater Austin area. Last fall, with the all the issues with Covid and the uncertainty, our league still had an 8-game season with 23 teams and several cheer teams. There was no other Pop Warner league in Texas that had a season. We had over 500 kids play tackle football. Pressing the “Easy Button” was to not do anything, and not have a season. We pushed to have a season for those chapters that wanted to, even in the face of people being afraid. We put protocols in place and had a great, safe season. Parents were so grateful that their kids could play. Kids were grateful for the comradery and optimism that came with seeing their lives begin to return to normal.
