I grew up right here in the heart of south central Kansas. In my youth, many evenings and weekends were spent at our family cabin exploring and fishing along elm creek in the gyp hills. As i grew older,, my passion for the outdoors transitioned more into hunting. I spent many weekends chasing our GSP's in search of upland birds. Early in my teen years, I was introduced to archery and my passion for chasing big, mature Kansas whitetails began. I've spent the majority of my adult life pursuing ventures in the oil and gas industry, but timing and opportunity presented itself to chase my dreams in real estate. My wife Oakley and I married in March of 2016. I'm a proud father of two boys, ages 2 and 4. Together with my wife and boys, we enjoy spending the majority of our time outdoors as a family. Our favorite family activites include fishing, shed hunting, and spring turkey hunting.
