I am still employed with the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences [UAMS] in the IT Department, working in the IT Technical Support Center for the University. I began employment with the University on April 19, 1991. UAMS is the only health sciences university in the state of Arkansas. UAMS is the state’s largest public employer with more than 10,000 employees in 73 of Arkansas’ 75 counties. UAMS and its clinical affiliates, Arkansas Children’s Hospital and the VA Medical Center, are an economic engine for the state with an annual economic impact of $3.92 billion.

Prior to employment with UAMS, previous employers have been with the U.S. Department of HUD, the Arkansas Department of Human Services, Office of Chief Counsel, and the Arkansas Department of Information Systems.

Currently, I live in the town of Benton, Arkansas with my wife Judy, who inherited her Mother and Dad's 3-acre property, which has the main house, and two large Shop buildings approximately 30'x60'. One of the buildings used to be a Wood Shop, which is currently being converted into Living Quarters, and the building is being extended to incorporate additional rooms + a 2-vehicle Garage. Judy also owns another home I helped her acquire, which is Lake-front property on Pebble Lake, Benton, Arkansas.
