I was born, and have spent most of my life in Harrison, Ohio. I graduated from Harrison High School in 2007. I married my wonderful wife, Liz, in 2020. In 2022, Liz and I had the opportunity to travel across our beautiful country. We stayed in Washington State, California, Arizona, and Colorado. In 2023, we decided to move back to Ohio so that we could welcome our first child, Rose. In my free time, I love to fish, or hike in our local parks, or just spending time with my family.

I grew up in Speedway, IN. My home was within walking distance to the Indianapolis Motor Speedway track and was a huge part of my life. Our entire town would prepare and even allow us to miss school for such huge events. I met my husband in my early twenties, and we have been married now for 22 years. We have three handsome sons all with different goals and bright ideas. I encourage my children to wake up with a prayer and affirmation to the Lord, have huge goals, and reach for the stars. My husband and I moved out to the tri-state area due to his job at Amazon, and we have found a little town we like to call home - Bright Indiana. My older boys are in college and my youngest goes to Bright Elementary. We love the outdoor life more than we thought. This has opened our hearts to many different adventures, and we love being out here in the country. I joined Paul Hall and Associates on April 18th, 2022. I walked into Mount Orab to do my training and I have loved this business ever since. I truly enjoy what I do and would not trade it for the world.

Growing up I was either on a ball field, basketball court, or sitting in a tree stand. By the time high school was over I had offers to play division 1 baseball, division 1 football, or division 2 basketball. I had several offers to play two sports. Life however had different plans for me. I was drafted by the Atlanta Braves after my sophomore year of college, at the same time my wife was expecting our second child. I knew that came with great responsibility. Traveling the country playing baseball or raising a family. To me it was a no-brainer, raise a family. I put my head down and went to work for the next 20 years. I'm proud to say I'm still married to my high school sweetheart, Dena. Ashleigh is now a junior in college and my son Brandon is doing well living in Milford. I now work with Paul Hall and associate's as property caretaker given me the chance to travel, watching my daughter play college soccer.

I was raised to bleed blue for UK, but ended up as an Ohio State Buckeye! I still enjoy going back to Columbus to support my Buckeyes whenever I have a chance. I came back home to work with dad writing insurance and doing marketing for the agency. Working with my family has truly been a blessing. I was married in August of 2016 to my best friend, Andrew Stroud. We welcomed our first daughter, Emily, into our family in August of 2018. Our second daughter, Elaina, was born in January of 2021. Our third daughter, Audrey, was most recently welcomed in August 2022. I grew up very active in 4-H and FFA, and even served as a State FFA Officer. Those organizations did so much for me, so I like to now give back by helping judge FFA and 4-H speaking contests as well as help prepare members for contests.
