I'm originally from the big ole town of Benld, and now reside in Hillsboro. I've been happily married for 14 years and am a father of 4. Graduated high school from Gillespie in 1999 and worked as a welder for many years. Joined the coalminers out of Hillsboro in 2010, and eventually started my sales career here in 2016.

I was born and raised in Litchfield, IL, and graduated high school in 2004. I joined the army as an 11B (Infantryman) right out of high school and served 4 years out of Ft. Lewis, WA. I did one 18-month tour in Iraq from 2006 to 2007. I started my sales career here at Wright Automotive in December of 2010, and have enjoyed serving the local people of the community for many years, and look forward to many more years to come. I'm a family man and father to my beautiful 7 year old daughter. I'm a gamer at heart, tech-nut, and a musician. Look for my videos on our Facebook channel or on my YouTube channel. Take care and drive safe.
