Born and raised in Houston, Texas, I have been a resident of Dallas for the past 12 years. I live with my beautiful wife, three wonderful children, two dogs, and one cat. Since adopting a puppy upon returning from our honeymoon, we have always had furry friends in our home. In addition to our own animals, we have fostered 23 dogs. I have spent the last 10 years working as an editor for an area newspaper and freelance writer. CPDT-KA, CCBC.
