I was born and raised in the Bayou City: Houston, Texas. After graduating high school, I joined the Army and served 4 years in active duty, 4 years in the Texas National Guard, and, after a 3 year hiatus, 3 years in the U.S. Army Reserves. I attended the University of Texas at San Antonio where I attained my Bachelor of Arts in History. I have tried settling down and taking it easy in life by simply relaxing with a beer and doing my own thing. However, my wife drinks all of my beer and keeps the energy vibe at max power. So instead, Tracy and I live spontaneous and fun-filled lives together and we hope to share some of that with you here at the Veterans Café.

I was born in San Antonio, Texas and was raised there for most of my early years. I have been a retail store manger for large successful companies and I have been a full-time, certified personal trainer and CrossFit affiliate. I was not born into a military family and did not realize this was something that would be possible for me to do. I joined the Army Reserves while in the best shape of my life at the age of 36. I discovered I could volunteer on a Thursday and was immediately sworn in on the following Tuesday. Life can be incredibly beautiful and extremely fun. I am now a photographer and live to find and share the beauty in moments I see through my lens. Enjoying our silly and sweet dogs, living the dream, and drinking all of my groom's beer is a giant cherry on an unbelievably delicious ice cream scoop of life. I hope you enjoy the ice cream and the scoop here at the café! :)
