About
Story
Introduction
Born in Southern Oklahoma, grew up in the big city, Oklahoma City.  Spent much time on the ranch and love the peace and quiet of the prairie and mountains.  Traveled much growing up with my family, discovered mountains and fly fishing.  Studied in Denmark for a year as a foreign exchange student.  I love roede groede med floede. (Inside joke to very close friends).  Went to Oklahoma State University where I studied Accounting and French.  Active in my fraternity as Rush Chairman, Social Chairman and President.  Active in campus politics.  Started a long career in Publc Accounting at Peat Marwick Mitchell as it was then know.  Boutique high net worth client tax and audit firm Hammert & Bolka, Then practiced as a sole proprietor for over a decade before moving to Kansas City to go into the utillity business.  Stolen away by Black & Veatch to develop and automate forecasting, budgeting and cash flow management processes.  But longed for my favorite vacation spot, Lauderdale By The Sea.  One spring day sitting on the beach by the pier the bug hit me and nine months later here I came to live.
