Born in Lamar Colorado, during a brief stint when my parents lost their minds and thought it might be a good idea to live someplace other than Texas. Deep Texas roots brought us back by the time I was 5, and I’ve lived here ever since. I’m close to my parents, sister and brother (in-law). I’ve also been blessed with 2 nieces that I love more than life itself. I started my career as a volunteer firefighter with Lockhart FD in 1992. Went to fire school A&M becoming a certified firefighter/EMT in 1995. I worked for AMR, first in Austin in 1998, then transferring to a 911 truck in Bexar Co. in 2006. I went to school for Paramedic at BLVD Spring Branch, becoming a Paramedic in 2008. I took a job with Galveston EMS just after Hurricane Ike where i worked for 4 years. During my time on the coast, I also volunteered with the Crystal beach FD, serving for 2 years as Asst. Fire Chief. I’ve worked for Gonzales Co. EMS since 2013.
