I most enjoy spending time with my wife and two sons. Both of my boys are involved in a variety of sports, including tennis, soccer, baseball, and Tae Kwon Do. They are also involved in Scouting and we enjoy camping and other outdoor activities.
My family and I are members of Holy Family Catholic Church in Fort Worth, Texas.
I was an avid soccer player growing up and played for the Dallas Texans select football club. I enjoy playing sports now with my two boys.
My family and I love to take the opportunity to travel. This past year, we traveled to Nicaragua, my wife’s native country. We have also taken several trips across the United States, most recently to Washington D.C., Chicago, San Francisco, Boston, and New York.
As an Eagle Scout, I have always enjoyed spending time among nature. I love high-adventure trips! I look for opportunities to go camping, hiking, or otherwise pass time outdoors.
