I was born in Texas and have lived all my life here between Tomball, College Station, Euless and Flower Mound. I attended Texas A&M University and earned a BS Computer Engineering in 1994. I have spent 20+ years in various IT roles, primarily as a developer and architect.

I am heavily involved in Scouting with my boys. I became an Eagle Scout in Troop 113 from the Sam Houston Area Council in 1989. I enjoy camping, backpacking and rockclimbing, as well as various computer and board games. I especially enjoy complex strategy games.
