My high school welding program got me started in my career.  I had an awesome instructor that I still talk to today.

I used to watch my Dad welding on farm equipment when I was a kid and I thought it was the coolest thing! Sometimes he even let me play around with it.I have 13 years of experience in downhill, uphill, plants, refineries, and tank farms, but most of it is pipeline.

I enjoy the outdoors, hunting, fishing, shooting guns, camping, hiking, four wheeling, and spending time with my family.

I like to see the kids that may have struggled in high school excel with hands-on training here at Western Welding Academy because I can see myself in them. I also like the way Western Welding Academy lets our students work at their own pace and lets them graduate early if they complete the course.
