PERSONAL HISTORY

Charlene and I live in Winfield, Kansas--–the home of the Midwest Sale. Our 6000 acre ranch is 20 miles southeast of Winfield in the scenic Flint Hills. Charlene is a native Texan with two children who live in Texas working as an oil and gas attorney and a land acquisition agent. She has worked in the real estate and financial industries. I am a retired surgeon educated at the University of Kansas, University of Texas and UCLA. My three children live in Austin, New York City and Peoria and work in the motion picture, oil shipping and food industries. I grew up on the family Flint Hills ranch but took a long leave of absence to practice medicine. We left Houston in 2013 and chose the completely different career path of raising longhorns. Ranch life has been very positive for both of us-- no traffic, clean air and beautiful sunsets!
