I lead a team of instructional designers helping deliver online courses at Sam Houston State University.I am a lifelong Texan; born in Houston, raised in Bay City, a few years in Aggieland (College Station), and have been in Huntsville since early 1996. I currently live on 11 acres with my wife Andie and our kids. Pets are dogs, cats, and a fluctuating number of fish, with an odd lot of chickens in the coop. We have a garden by the barn and a variety of wildlife. I keep myself busy with volunteer and outdoor activities, including helping with the Scouting units my kids are in and serving local charities in various capacities.
