About me

I was born and raised in a traditional working class household in the West Meadowbrook area of east Fort Worth in the 1960s and 1970s.  I attended public schools, earned a degree and political science from The University of Texas at Arlington and a law degree from The South Texas College of Law.


Will Rogers once said that what you do for yourself is how you make a living and what you do for others is how you make a life.  I enjoy what I do for a living (and if I don't, I shouldn't be doing it).  I want to share with you some of the things that I do to make a life.


The most important thing that I do outside of my work is found in the work that I do at First Presbyterian Church -- Fort Worth.  I have served on the Mission and Outreach Committee and currently serve on the Nominating Committee.  In addition to that I am serving on a task force that is designing a new worship service at our Hemphill campus.  This will be at evening service that begins at 6:08, and is being designed for people who might not enjoy a tradional worship service.  The starting time comes from Micah 6:8, "What does the Lord require of you, ..."


The Stephen Ministry is another program in which I am involved.  This program prepares church members to further serve by giving them additional training to care for those who are going through difficult situations.  I have only recently started my involvement with this.


Church is not my only outside activity.  I love baseball, history, and the theatre.
