A Texan Born & Raised
I’m a native Texan, born and raised in a farming family in the Lubbock area.
After graduating from New Deal High School, a small school just north of Lubbock, I attended Texas Tech University and earned a degree in architecture.
A Calling to Dentistry
While I enjoyed working as an intern architect, I felt a calling to work with people in a healthcare setting. I felt my design skills would be best suited for dentistry, and I was fortunate to be able to attend one of the best dental schools in the country: The University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio.
A Passion for Making People Smile
During dental school, I truly discovered my passion for making people smile. And I felt that the best way to do that was through orthodontics. What’s better than helping someone achieve a healthy, beautiful smile? So, I went on to earn my Orthodontic Certificate and Master of Science in Dentistry at the University of Colorado. Now, I’m so excited to be back in the great state of Texas, and I am looking forward to making our wonderful community smile!
A Family Man
In addition to being an orthodontic specialist, I am also a husband, father, and bluegrass music enthusiast. I met my beautiful wife, Sarah, at Texas Tech, and we have three wonderful children, Kennedy, Hudson, and our newest addition, Audrey. We enjoy reading books, going to the zoo, and visiting museums as a family.
