I live in Amarillo and I am married to the mother of my three children.
I like nature and the outdoors. I like birding and photography and I am skilled at both. I like to travel and have visited 32 countries on 5 continents and 28 of the United States. I like woodworking and welding but I’m skilled at neither. Other than local news, I rarely watch TV but I am a feature film fanatic. I enjoy eating the fabulous creations produced in my wife’s kitchen (food, mostly). And I find great satisfaction in teaching young people how to think critically for themselves.
