I was born in Fresno, CA. I grew up in a tiny farm town just east of Fresno called Clovis at the base of the Sierra-Nevada Mountains in the central valley of California on a fully functional 5 acre farm from birth until I was 11. Then we moved to Washington and I grew up in a tiny rural town from age 11 to 18 when I joined the Army. I have a wife, Roxanne. We have been together for 13 years, married for almost 4 years. I have a 25 year old daughter, Kaylee, from a previous marriage. She gave me a grandson, Damien (5), and a granddaughter, Estelle (3). I also have another daughter, Evelyn, (6) that is my wife's miracle baby! Evelyn just started kindergarten
My first job was when I was 16. I worked for a small start up espresso stand in the tiny little town I grew up in.
I chose to work for Don-Lors after another contractor for Dish closed their business. While working with Don-Lors, I enjoy the daily challenges that present themselves. It is not a boring repetitive daily grind. We do work for so many different companies! I always do anything I commit to to the best of my abilities. When I do something, I have left it all on the table and could not have done a better job. The best advice I have ever been given is to always look for the positive and focus on that.
Football (Seahawks and the Washington Huskies), Baseball (Mariners), Tim McGraw, Lasagna, spending time with family, and playing softball. My nickname at softball is Cable Guy, in part because my favorite comedian is Larry the Cable Guy and everyone thinks I should do standup comedy because of my quick wit humor and in part because of my profession.
