I’ve had 5 near-death experiences that I know of:

  • Taken to ER for Asthma attack at age 5
  • Mom saved me from drowning at age 7
  • Car accident (windshield/head) at age 16
  • Car accident (windshield/head) at age 26

I’m the Business Liaison for Washington County Drug Court even though I’ve been arrested for:

  • Juvenile & Misdemeanor Theft
  • Aggravated Theft I

  • DUI


My DNA is divinely twisted:

  • I was born in Shreveport, La., raised all over Texas and I live in Newberg, OR
  • I’m joyfully married (1997). I have one son (Braylon ’02) & one daughter (Angel ’06)
  • I thought about going to Washington State University but I ended up going to Washington County
  • I don’t have a high school diploma, GED or any college credits
  • I should be dead but I’m alive and because I died, I’m now truly alive
  • I’ve discovered multiple hidden treasures over the last ten years
  • I like vacuum lines in the carpet
  • I once drove a Judge to prison
  • I’m fascinated with seeds
  • I absolutely love Sushi
