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.
