I like to fish, especially fly fishing. I have fished in Oklahoma, Arkansas, Tennessee, Texas, Montana, and Wyoming. I want to fly fish in Colorado and New Mexico next year, along the coast of the Gulf of Mexico, and in the Guadalupe River here in Texas.

I am working on my Masters degree in History and will be able to teach college classes next Fall. Currently, I am researching Boy Scouting among African Americans during the Jim Crow era. I have completed my family history up to the 16th century when my ancestors came to America. I have mostly English ancestry but also Irish, Scottish, French, Jewish, Dutch, and American Indian. I had an ancestor in the American Revolutionary War, War of 1812, Civil War, Texas Revolution, the Great War, World War II, and my father served in the Army during the Vietnam War, he was in Germany during the Munich Olympics.
