As a young man I started working at a local antique auction house holding up furniture for another auctioneer. When I turned 18 years old I joined the United States Air Force, and was part of the 72nd Security Forces (military police) at Tinker Air Force base. I did a tour in Ali Al Salem after the Yeman attacks. I also was on the front gate after Sept. 11 if any of you remember the long waits! I decided to find a different path and was honorably discharged in 2003. I decided I'd like to start my own business and attended Missouri Auction school in 2004. I tell you what I love the auction business as I get to help people and do something I enjoy. Emilee and I have two wonderful children Avery (10 yr) & Dannie (8 yrs), who attend Destiny Christian School in the City. We also have two other companies that we own and operate Sooner Wiping Rags and Welch Floors (grandpa's company). My hobby is listing on ebay where I keep around 12,000 listings up. In 2017 we bought a home in Shawnee, Oklahoma and moved my wife's grandparents Bob and Barbara in with us at the age of 88 and 86. It's wonderful to sit down and have three generations at a table who pray together. I'm part of the Masonic fraternity where I'm active and part of the Nicoma Park and Mcalester organizations. My family and I love to fish, swim, and wonder Oklahoma.
