I was born and raised in Dallas, Texas where my parents continue to live. I have one sister who is an ordained minister and has a church in Flower Mound, Texas. I have been married to a beautiful woman (who is an elementary school teacher) for 20 years. We have a 14 year old daughter who loves soccer and volleyball. I have several interests including movies, woodworking, and soccer. I maintain active practice as a Family Nurse Practitioner in Plainview, Texas.
