I AM FROM
a sleepy little town just south of Lake Tahoe in the Sierra Nevada mountains of California. We lived about 45 minutes from the nearest stoplight. My childhood activities included shoveling snow, splitting wood, shoveling snow, torturing my sister, shoveling snow, waisting time, and did I mention shoveling snow?
at Humboldt State University in Arcata, CA, about one hour south of the California, Oregon border on the pacific coast. The average daily high temperature in the summer was about 68 degrees. I studied applied mathematics, ecology, and salmon fishing.
I HAVE WORKED

I HAVE SERVED

live in the woods northwest of Angleton, TX with my wonderful wife Melissa. Our house is governed by our three "fury" four legged children: Tiger, Champagne, and Skye. We enjoy bird watching, astronomy, and anything else in God's wonderful creation.
