About me

I live in east Dallas with my wife and two children, who collectively make life so much fun.  I'm a sports fan - primarily football and baseball - and I am a golfer, albeit a poor one.  I grew up in Galveston County, Texas, and fostered a love of salt water fishing and hunting as a kid.  Of course, these days I have precious little time for any of it, at least until my kids get a little bit older perhaps!  My heroes are my parents and the rest of my family, who instilled in me the notions that character counts in this world; that responsibility is a privilege to be borne proudly; and the importance of bringing a strong work ethic to everything I do.
