You have one life. Live it with purpose.

A dynamic speaker and OKC Bombing Survivor who will inspire
you to wake up and live your best life possible.

“I was about to die and realized I had never truly lived.”

In 1995, I was working as a teller for the Federal Employees Credit Union located in the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building when my life changed in an instant.

A loud boom erupted and darkness enveloped me as I went into a three-story freefall. Finding myself entombed in concrete, I begged God to give me another chance. Over six hours later I was pulled from the rubble.

Embracing that second chance I went back to college and earned my degree, lost over 200 lbs, and became an Ironman Triathlete. Today, I’m the CEO of that same Credit Union.

Sometimes we all need a wake-up call. Mine was a bombing. This is yours. Through my experience and subsequent transformation, I want to help you live a purposeful life and achieve your wildest dreams.
