I was raised in the rural community of Cullman Alabama just North of Birmingham. I earned my undergraduate and graduate degrees from both the University of Alabama at Birmingham and Auburn University. My wife and I relocated to Winnemucca in 1992 to start a physical therapy/rehabilitation company. We have five children, three of whom are sixth generation Winnemuccans.I provided consulting services and served as a Human Resources Manager for the world's largest gold mining company until April 2004 when I assumed ownership of Century 21 Sonoma Realty. My strengths in real estate sales include developing customer relationships and finding creative ways to achieve the client's objectives.
