About me

Although I lived in several US states and cities, I mainly grew up in Odessa Texas. I enlisted for four years in the Army shortly after high school. I served with the 82nd Airborne Division the entire time. It was a great experience for me, but I needed to further my education. After my military service and studies, I wanted to come back to Texas and ended up in Houston.
