About Yourself And Your Professional Background
I grew up in Graham, Texas, a town of about 9,000 people in North Texas, then came to Austin in 2002 to attend UT, and have never left. I am with Wortham Insurance & Risk Management, the largest insurance broker based in Texas. I met my wife, Ashby, while we were both at UT, and we are blessed with two children, Clark and Hallie.
Why Junior Achievement?
I am passionate about both education and entrepreneurship, and believe that both can arm people to make a better life for themselves, for their family, for the their community, and ultimately the world. I have not seen an organization that blends the principles of education and entrepreneurship as well as JA does, and am honored to be a part of an organization that provides young people the tools they need to succeed and make an impact.
