A short history about me.

I was born in Galveston, Texas.  I am the oldest of my three brothers and sister.  Earlier this year, my parents celebrated their fifty-ninth wedding anniversary.  During most of my childhood, my father worked at least two jobs and my mother had the most important job of raising five children and maintaining a home.  During my childhood, I was a member of several youth organizations.  During my high school years, my parents were able to save their money and started a small business.  I worked and helped manage their business after school and on weekends.  I also had another part-time job-working two days per week after my duties at the family business were finished for the day.  After high school I enrolled in college.  I studied Civil Engineering at Texas A&M University in College Station.  To pay for college, I worked as a longshoreman in Galveston on college break and worked for the university at the Texas Engineering Experiment Station and Civil Engineering Department.  I graduated from Texas A&M with a bachelor’s degree in civil engineering and became a registered professional engineer.  After college I moved to Austin and I started working for the state as an environmental engineer.    

The accomplishments that I am most proud of are my two sons.  Both of my sons became eagle scouts, my oldest graduated from West Point and served a tour in Iraq, and my youngest is a graduate from Texas A&M in forestry working for the Texas A&M Forestry Service (one of his jobs is fighting forest fires).

I have lived in the current District 4 area for over twenty years.  During which time, I was:  the president of the Home and School Association at St. Louis Catholic School,  co-chairman of the Campus Advisory Committee at Johnson High School, and a member of the Finance Board at St. Ignatius Catholic Church.  My family was involved with Big Brothers/Big Sisters, Saint Gabriel’s Project, Special Olympics, and Meals on Wheels.  I am currently, an assistant scout master and a member of the Knights of Columbus.
