My Story

My Corps Buddies

I'm the baby-faced one 2nd from left.

I was born at a very young age, as time went on I grew older… Not funny? Really though, I was born in San Antonio when it wasn’t cool. I am the 4th of 5 kids and things started out pretty good. I learned to ride my bike on a dirt road (I’m really proud of that), and wasn’t considered part of the gang until I could balance on my bike for two minutes. My brothers were cruel.
I am the son of a carpenter. He either built or completely remodeled every house I lived in growing up. All that to say, I’m also pretty handy with a hammer and a Sawz-All. I love building things both physically and conceptually. My father is a small business owner and entrepreneur. That has worn off on me. I am continually looking for new opportunities for small business. My buddies and I are always coming up with new schemes and business plans. I enjoy thinking about the next big thing.
My high school days were filled with football and Model UN. I know, it’s a weird combination but my thirst for competition comes in many forms. I would later expand on my political interest in college and finally as a member of a presidential campaign. My football interest however; ended with a loss on a rainy November evening my senior year.
For some unknown reason I joined the Corps of Cadets at Texas A&M my freshman year. I am not prone to make militaristic decisions but it turned out to be the best decision of my life. I learned discipline in a whole new form… push-ups. Lots and lots of push-ups. I could rack out 106 (a class set) push-ups in about two minutes. And no, my knees weren’t on the ground. But more than that the Corps gave me a lifetime of friendships and brothers. It pushed me to always give my best. In everything I did; from getting dressed properly to memorizing names and facts. Those seemingly meaningless tasks have helped me along the way.
