My wife and I have three kids who are 19, 17, and 14 years old. Our oldest, Colleen, is at Southwestern University in Georgetown, Texas. Megan, our 17-year-old, is a junior at Amarillo High School. Alex, our youngest, is in eighth grade at Ascension Academy. We've lived in Amarillo, Texas for 22 years.
I'm the Senior Vice President of Innovation for a technology company. I'm also an adjunct instructor of technology at Ascension Academy. I have served on the Amarillo Little Theater board, Amarillo Adult Literacy board, Panhandle Twenty/20 board, the Discovery Center board, the Wildcat Bluff Nature Center board, and am the VP of the Mariposa Land Trust. I am also a Amarillo City Traffic Commissioner and was a member of the Red Light Advisory Committee. This does not mean I can run red lights.
I was also part of the inaugural Amarillo 101 class where a group of us learned the ins-and-outs of the city government and its operations. I learned that water is very scarce here, trash is very interesting, and people employed by the city work very hard to make sure we don't have to worry about either.
I have an undergrad and a master's degree from Texas A&M. I went to the University of Texas School of Law too. I speak German, French, and Chinese. After years of study, I can finally say 你好 confidently.
I enjoy chess, riding my bicycle, doing magic tricks, and Aikido. I am an amateur at all of these.
