About me

I've lived in the Dallas/Fort Worth area since my parents packed up the family when I was three and left Arizona. I went to school here from kindergarten through law school and I've worked here my whole life. As much as I am embedded in the community here, my wife and I enjoy traveling when work permits a vacation. Our two very needy cats do not enjoy our absence but a good work-life balance is important. We are very deep into the craft beer scene and brew our own beer. I am a tremendous fan of lambic, saisons and almost anything put in a cask, but overall I enjoy most beer styles. I also enjoy a good Speyside or Highlands scotch and I rarely let a morning go by without coffee.
