I was born and raised in Alvin Texas, son of a Veterinarian. I was very fortunate to have been exposed at such a young age to so many animals. We had horses, cattle, kitties and of course many dogs. After graduating from Alvin High School in 1977 I immediately started school at Texas A&M University. I was soon accepted to Veterinary school and graduated in 1984.
In 1985 I started my own practice in League City Texas and practiced there for over 30 years. I eventually sold my practice and moved to Giddings Texas where I presently enjoy raising cattle on a small ranch.
I am blessed to have three wonderful children. They are all married now and have started their own families.
Other hobbies I enjoy are hiking, hunting, fishing and most anything outdoors.
