Executive Director/Founder

My life changed forever when I became a father. One of those changes was my purpose and passion in life. The insurmountable joy fatherhood had brought me also opened my eyes to a problem that continues to increase: rate of fatherless homes in America.

The best part of my day is picking my son up after a long day’s work and having him yell daddy as he wraps his arms around me. He makes me a better person and having a positive healthy relationship with him will ensure he will grow up to be an even better man than I am. I decided to start Paternal Guardians of Iowa whose mission is to eliminate the fatherless epidemic and ensure that every child can grow up having a healthy and positive relationship with their father.
