I was born and raised in the city of Arlington, Texas to a typical suburban family of 5. I was the boy on the block that loved animals and looked for every opportunity to own a new pet! My idea of fun was going to the local Animal Shelter or pet club. I studied Psychology in college, which has provided a lot of insight on not just human but also animal behavior. My first career was with Starbucks Coffee Company where I was a Store Manager for 11 years. That job taught me so much about business and how to create an uplifting a passionate culture. In 2017, I decided it was time to move on and begin a career working with my lifelong love, animals! I got a job as Veterinary Practice Manager at 303 Animal Clinic. I loved my time there and learned so much about veterinary medicine and the pet industry as a whole. I am currently a homeowner in the same neighborhood I grow up in with my 2 dogs, Ethel and Libby. My hobbies include Aquarium keeping, gardening, and spending time with my dogs and family.
