I grew up in the country near Annapolis, MD. Growing up with a younger brother and sister, our family owned horses, goats, chickens, cats and dogs. I learned to play the clarinet and baritone saxophone, and taught myself the piano. I attended the largest high school in Maryland, with over 3,300 students, and was very active in both academics and music as I played in three high school bands. My true love was baseball, and was very proud to make the team as catcher with over 400 students trying out. In my senior year, I was the starting pitcher.

I started working part-time my junior year of high school and now have a full resume. My experience includes sales clerk in a hardware store, gas station attendant, and apprentice in a precision etching laboratory. My full-time career started with Westinghouse Department of Defense, which eventually brought me to New Mexico, with the understanding that I continue going to school. I earned a degree from NMSU in computer science with a minor in mathematics after attending college for 16 years as a part-time student. My career has included working as an associate real estate broker, in industrial supply, automotive, solar and insurance, and then copier sales with Xerox and PTS Office Systems. Did I mention I enjoy sports? I have also played competitive softball for 33 years, while additionally umpiring 300 to 400 games a year for seven of those years.

When I wasn't busy, I volunteered my time with the Las Cruces Chamber of Commerce and participated as a Conquistador. I've also served on the board of directors for many years with the Jardin De Los Nino's. Currently, I am vice chair with the Sunland Park Chamber Of Commerce, which is in its startup phase.

I've been supported by my wife, Maria, who hails from El Paso, TX via Juarez, Mexico. I have two daughters, Kristin And Erika, and my first grand daughter, Emilia.

In my free time I enjoy golf, music, exercising, gardening and following most sports.
