Bio

I attended Austin College with a Degree in Biochemistry and later attended The University of Texas Medical School at San Antonio.

I have been medical director for home health companies, nursing home, and have served as chief of staff at a hospital. My wife and I have four children. We live in Colorado and are attending Bible College.
