I am a lifelong outdoorsman, having hunted, fished, hiked and photographed since a young age. In 1997 I was the third teacher recruited into the then Outdoor Trails program originating at Lewisville ISD. I currently do most of the TPWD Angler Education certification training for the OA program. My wife Donna and I have been married 56 years, and have a son and two grandchildren. Since my retirement in 2007, I have become a Texas Master Naturalist. I am a volunteer trail guide at the Heard Refuge and the Lewisville Lake Environmental Learning Area. I am also a tram tour driver/guide at the Hagerman National Wildlife Refuge.
