My road in life took a while to figure out.
Attended Southwest Baptist University, where I graduated with my bachelor’s degree.
Worked for many years as a teacher and participated in humanitarian missions all over the world alongside my wife.
After traveling to the Philippines and China, I found myself becoming more and more passionate about helping people and less concerned with the security of a weekly paycheck and retirement benefits.
My wife and I decided to start Hearts and Hands International, an organization that built and operated orphanages for at-risk children in Asia, South America, and Africa.
While helping to build a water well at one of our orphanages in Kenya, I realized the full extent of the water crisis in Africa and around the world.
In 2007, we founded WATERisLIFE, an organization dedicated to ending the world water crisis by using technologies that already exist.
Using my backpacker knowledge, I helped develop portable straw filters that children could take to school to help prevent water-borne illness as a result of contaminated water sources.
We have since utilized and implemented home systems using NanoTube technology, solar and wind-powered community systems, drilling, and rainwater catchment systems in over 45 countries.
