     I was born in San Antonio, Texas on September 25, 1956.  I was fortunate to grow up in Snyder, Texas and benefited from a great school system and community.  I met my future wife Kathy at Snyder High and we have been happily married for 41 years.  We have been blessed to have a son, Wes, and a daughter Kailey, who we have always loved and enjoyed watching them in their activities.  We are now blessed with three grand children, Halleigh, Keller, and Cannon.

     Kathy taught for 32 years and now trains teachers on how to help students become better writers.  This is my 31st year in education.  I am in the business because I love people, especially young people and those giving their lives to teach them.  My hobbies include hunting, fishing, golf and watching sports at every level.
