Prior to attending law school, I was the co-founder of an adoption agency and the general manager of a family-owned manufacturing company. I have resided in the Kansas City area since 1973. I live in Olathe, Kansas with my wife, Anne. My wife and I have five adult children and six grandchildren. I am also active in community and church activities. In my spare time, I enjoy watching auto racing, KU basketball, playing golf, and spending time with family and friends.
