Tell us about your family.
Carole and I met at Baylor and have been married for almost 23 years. We have three girls: Ava, 18, Miriam, 14, and Ruby, 11.

Tell us about your work or volunteer life.
After 12 years in business litigation, I started a new career in 2019 as in-house counsel at Rushmore Loan Management. The hours aren’t quite as long, and I’ve enjoyed the challenge of helping a young company grow. Outside of work, I’ve been involved with the Virginia Law Foundation, and I’ve been privileged to serve in various capacities at Wilshire.

What are your favorite hobbies?
Playing guitar and piano; following college football and European soccer; and, recently, learning everything the Internet can teach me about college admissions.

Where is your favorite place to travel?
I spent a semester in the Netherlands during college, and I’d love to go back. It’s an entire country full of tall, skinny people; I’ve never felt so understood! I’m also on a lifelong quest to see all 50 states, but I seem to have stalled out at 45.

What brought you to Wilshire and when?
We came to Dallas in 2007 looking for a CBF-affiliated Baptist church. We attended Royal Lane Baptist for a few years, but wanted a church with more family and children’s activities, so we came to Wilshire in 2010.

Where are you engaged at Wilshire?
I’m currently vice chair of deacons and serving on both the Preschool Education Committee and Children’s Education Committee.

What has surprised you most about Wilshire?
The level of support for and commitment to the residency program; it’s one of my favorite things about Wilshire.

Tell us about your faith journey.
I’m the son and grandson of Southern Baptist ministers, so church has always been a constant in my life. My own journey really began at Baylor, where various experiences in and out of the classroom challenged my inherited beliefs and began to shape my faith. I think Wilshire is a leader in showing the world a different way to be Baptist, and I’m proud to be part of that.

What’s something interesting most people wouldn’t know about you?
For about 15 years, I’ve been participating in a fantasy Tour de France cycling league every summer with several fellow lawyers.
