After achieving the rank of Eagle Scout from the Boy Scouts of America, I graduated from Coronado High School in El Paso in 1973. Four years later, I graduated Magna Cum Laude from Trinity University with a degree in Biology. Then it was onto the University of Texas Dental Branch in San Antonio until I completed training in 1981. Soon after that, I associated myself with a dentist in Corpus Christi and continued there in practice until December 1981.
In January 1982, I opened my own private dental practice in the wonderful East Texas town of Kilgore. Then, in May of the same year, I married my sweetheart, Dimi. We have two children, Peter and Ryan. Ryan married Renae Wright in 2013. Currently, I am active in the Boy Scouts of America, Kilgore Soccer Association and St. Paul’s Episcopal Church.
My greatest interest these days is spending time with Dimi and my family. As time permits, I also enjoy raquetball, soccer, gardening and woodworking.
