Degrees and Certifications:
I was born and rasied in Amarillo, Texas where I graduated from Caprock High School. While in high school I participated in football, basketball, track and yearbook. After high school I obtained my B.A. in Political Science with an Advanced Certificate in International Reltations from Texas A&M University. While in college, the attacks of 9/11 occurred, which altered my career path to the military. I joined the Army, completed Officer Candidate School along with Ranger School and then deployed twice to Iraq (3rd Infantry Division and 101st Airborne). I still currently serve as a Major in the Texas Army National Guard.
After six years on active duty I moved to Dallas and obtained my law degree from Texas A&M School of Law in Ft. Worth. I practiced law in a variety of different fields including contracts, municiple, veterans affairs, family, probate and bankruptcy.
I hope to bring my experiences to the classroom and playing field in order to facilitate a rich learning environment. This is my first year teaching (World Geography - Honors) and coaching (basketball and football).
I have been married to my wife Jessica for 10 years and we are currently kept extremley busy with our two young sons - Liam and Jaxon.
