About Me

Most people don't read About pages. I hope you will.

I love God.  I love Karen.  I love Chiropractic.  I love Tenkara Fly Fishing.  I love Colorado. I love Lost Valley Ranch.  I love People.

I grew up watching old home movies of my father and his family and their 1958 and ’59 vacations to Lost Valley Ranch, near Cheeseman Reservoir.  We dreamed that some day our family would have the opportunity to vacation there and reenact some of those cowboy adventures.

We did just that in June 1983.  That’s the first time I drove through Woodland Park.  I still have the bull whip I bought at The Cowhand.  We came back to Lost Valley in ’84 and ’85, and then I had the honor of working for the Foster family for several seasons in the late 80s and early 90s.  Karen and I were engaged on Helen’s Rock, overlooking the Ranch, and we vacationed there several times on either side of the Hayman Fire.

In 1995, Karen and I were married, I graduated from chiropractic college, and started my first chiropractic practice in the St. Louis area.  We stayed in Missouri for 4 years, and then moved to my my home state of Indiana.  We lived in Bloomington, IN for for just over 18 years before God opened up the opportunity for my 26-year dream to come true – to move to Woodland Park, CO.

At the time I’m writing this, we are about 2 months from packing everything we own (or everything we didn’t donate to Goodwill) and heading West.

Karen works in the field of addiction, helping individuals and families to navigate the challenges of this family disease.  She coaches and consults with individuals and families, performs interventions, and helps people to get the help and treatment they desperately need.

We know addiction.  It came to live in our home and nearly killed us, along with our marriage.  God had other plans, though.  As Dave Ramsey says, “Sharing your testimony is awesome.  Getting a testimony sucks.”

We so look forward to this new chapter in Colorado.  We look forward to meeting you.

We leave behind some amazing people and experiences in Indiana and St. Louis.  We hope to share our new life with some of those folks.

Our prayer is that God will honor our efforts in Colorado, that I will be able to serve many people as a chiropractor, take some folks fishing with me, and that Karen will be able to use her amazing talents to help people through some of the most difficult challenges they will ever face.  Addiction sucks.

Give me a call.  Let’s talk chiropractic.  Let’s talk fly fishing.  Let’s talk about what a blessing it is to live near Pike National Forest.
