I am the furthest thing from a city boy, but being in Arizona now, I know I am meant to be homegrown and homebound. I grew up in the small, close-knit community of Snowflake located in rural Northeastern Arizona. Becoming a family physician and returning home to Snowflake has been my dream since childhood.
I married Kendra in 2003 and we now have three beautiful and blessed children, Derek, Emily and Sarah. I often think about my family, fruit trees and tomatoes, and my favorite activity is working in my garden with my family working around me. I crave the outdoors but am generally preoccupied with the ground (as are my children), trying to collect new minerals and rock specimens while Kendra sits by reading her books. We are a simple bunch with simple needs. We are elated Phoenix Baptist will be our home for the next three years.
