Doug is a life-long Johnson County resident of the city of Joshua. While attending Joshua Independent School District, he developed ideals and friendships that have carried him into adulthood. His father, a retired Johnson County Precinct Supervisor, and his mother, a retired JISD teacher, coach, and counselor, provided him with love and life experiences that enabled him to envision a professional career with a continued dedication to helping others. His public school teaching, coaching, and counseling, including eight years in the JISD school system, have given him the opportunity to promote learning and guide middle school students as they transition to further education or work. It is this same dedication that drew him to pursue a career in real estate.

We do not do well with idle time”. Doug also enjoys writing and recording music. “Music has always been something I am extremely passionate about. Music and playing guitar will always be a part of my life in some form or fashion.”
