Born and raised in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma. Graduated from the University of Oklahoma in 1979 with a Business Degree in Management. I began my commerical real estate career in 1982 about the time the Oil and Gas industry collapsed so I learned the commercial real estate business in a very difficult time in our market. Since then we have seen ups and downs in our industry but with our survival skills acquired in the 80's we have grown and flourished. Today the Oklahoma City market has emerged as a premier city for development and change.
