Interests

I grew up in Hurricane Utah; I love it here and can’t imagine living anywhere else. My main interests are my amazing wife and my two beautiful daughters, who I love more than anything. Also, I enjoy hunting, fishing, and pretty much anything outdoors. Growing up I played football, baseball and wrestled. I have a great appreciation for athletics and I’m grateful to work for a company that allows students the opportunity to grow both on and off the field.

Comments on DRA

I started working at DRA on the weekend, as a supplemental income, while I started my own business. In my mind it was a means to an end and had plans to only work at DRA until my business became equitable. My business began to do very well, but I didn’t expect to fall in love with the culture of DRA. To this day I still own my business and it has turned out to be a great investment, but nothing compares to the satisfaction I get each day working with the students and staff at DRA. The principles we teach at DRA ring true for anyone who is willing to learn and apply them. I can personally say that working with these kids and learning what they learn has made me a better son, brother, husband and father. One aspect of DRA that I love is that we are not babysitters, we work with the parents as much as the students to help them communicate and find common ground. You will not find a more dedicated group of people on the planet than the staff at DRA. We pride ourselves on helping students realize they have the potential to achieve things that they did not think were possible. I love working for DRA and plan to spend the rest of my professional career working for this institution.
