Interests

First of all, I am the father of two beautiful daughters, Kaley and Hope.

I enjoy mountain biking, and often times can be found at one of the trails west of Austin; Pace Bend, Reimers, or Muleshoe.

One of my favorite simple pleasures in life is enjoying a sunset with friends out on Lake Travis.
