I was born and raised in Cuero, TX, "Turkey Capital of the World", doing what I like to do most. Being with my family, raising cattle and doing all the hunting and fishing I can fit in between. I attended Victoria Jr. College and served in the Army National Guard all the while working cattle for different cattle operations, I broke away from the cattle business for about 7 years working for Southern Pacific railroad. I was promoted to district manager over a terminal in Houston for about 4 years and as the saying goes, "you can take the boy out of the country, but you can't take the country out of the boy". So, I went back to my passion of ranching, started a dozer and fence building business, and into the real estate world.
In 1997, my wife Lindy, who was a co-owner of a real estate company, talked me into getting my real estate license and handling the farm and ranch properties for their company. In 2003 I became a broker and we started a farm and ranch realty company of our own, which we have truly enjoyed over the last 16 years.
Lindy and I are very active with our church and community activities. We have 3 children and 6 grandchildren, our pride and joy.
I am a very avid hunter, fisherman and conservationist and I am extremely happy to be part of the Hayden Outdoors team!
