A native Phoenician, I am married to Jaye Brown with two boys, two girls and 4 grandchildren. I am a businessman that has owned several businesses over the last 22 years. I currently own Velt’s Personalized Car Care and 1st Choice Polygraph Service. I have a great heart for the Lord and have been an active member in the church where I served as the Armor Bearer under two different Pastors, served two terms on the advisory board and served on the usher board and as a greeter. I have headed up several committees and started up the October Fest at our church, which was a free festival to the community to give them an alternative to trick or treating.
I have a passion for working with our youth. I have coached various sports for over 30 years, a love that started when I was a student athlete at Eastern Washington University, where I played basketball. I have coached at several levels from 3rd grade to High School.
I am an avid motorcyclist that enjoys long rides and the camaraderie of the motorcycle family. After taking a trip to Sturgis South Dakota and several trips to El Paso, my passion for long road trips increased. It is one of my personal goals to ride my motorcycle to all 49 states and rent a bike to ride in Hawaii.

I take a great deal of pride in helping to educate the public about the extremely important contributions of the Buffalo Soldiers/Troopers to our nation. As I travel across the country in my truck, I talk to people from all walks of life about the history and courageous acts of the original Buffalo Soldiers and the good works the current organizations perform in service to the public..
When not on the road or riding with the Buffalo Troopers, I spend a lot of time helping kids who are in junior and senior high school become aware of the scholarship opportunities that are available to them and helping them to understand what is required of them to be eligible to receive those scholarships.
