I'm supported in my campaign by my wife, Tracy, and our three children, Adrian, Nathan, and Preston. They are the foundation that allows me to pursue my interests.
My children and I earned black belts in the American Taekwondo Association. I am currently a second degree, working to earn my third degree. I find this sport to be physically challenging and socially fulfilling. The practice of TKD reinforces many leadership principles: goal setting, training, technique mastery, encouragement, teamwork, patience, perseverance, respect, honor, and self-control.
