I was born and raised in San Antonio, Texas. I have worked on family ranches in Gillespie County since 1965, and on friends' ranches in South Texas. Growing up I played sports and started rodeoing in high school. I did all three bucking events - bull, bareback and saddle bronc. I've worked in ranch realty for 24 years and was the administrator for my father's architectural/landscape architectural firm for 30 years. I am a licensed and ordained non-denominational pastor, and have been for 3 years.
