Founder – Head Instructor
I was born and raised in Texas. I grew up with an outdoors lifestyle legacy and a heritage of self-sufficiency and independence. I grew up with loving female influences and strong male role models that taught me how to respect others until they showed they no longer deserve it.
I was blessed with natural athletic ability. Sports helped me learn leadership, teamwork, dedication, manliness, competition, honor and at times defeat, humility and pain. As a young man I learned quickly that others looked up to me, and teaching others made me feel good, giving was indeed better than receiving. Sports would not last forever so I had to fill that hole with something.
I tried my hand at the big life. I held numerous managerial and department head positions in sales, purchasing and manufacturing. I spent seven years in a research and development role for Georgetown Rail and Equipment, building prototypes, scale models for proof of concept, and managing R&D facilities. I spent two years in R&D of fuel cell technology and alternative energies to include studies in feasibility of a Hydrogen Economy and hybrid systems with Snead Research.
I have an inventor’s mind, and take pleasure in designing and creating new things. I became certified welder and machinist to include military aviation ground support equipment. In cooperation with Bourne Industries, I developed and produced an all-electric three-wheeled car for commuter travel in large cities. I also have the honor of holding two U.S. patents on boat trailer design.
Throughout my live I have been involved in shooting sports. I started off with hunting and quickly into long range shooting. As I grew I found new avenues to fill my competitive nature and started shooting revolvers and simi auto handguns. This, over time, moved me into more tactical and combat shooting. I never have been military or Law Enforcement but I have been fortunate enough to be tutored by some very special and talented people with pedigrees that I can only aspire to. I have also been part of high performance teams in the Search and Rescue world. Our team specialized in High Angle Rescue, Cave Rescue and Man Tracking.
Currently, I am the Director of Operations at Lone Star Peak Performance, a leadership development and team-building company. My personal passion is to help build up and elevate men and women of character who lead in their families and workplace. I take groups and individuals outside their comfort zone and expand their panic zone through team building experiences and facilitation of experiential learning programs. I teach servant leadership and the powerful impact that approach has on individuals and the organizations that they lead. But make no mistake; servant does not imply slave or submissiveness.
I also am the Founder of OUTRIDERS. We here at Outriders want to reintroduce some old skills in a new way. We believe these specialized skills could not only elevate you as a leader but actually save lives, possibly your own. Please take time to dig into the information you find here and give a honest accounting of yourself and ask, would these tools be nice to have in life and death situation? If you can say yes then there is no better time than NOW to become an OUTRIDER.
