I was born in Houston, TX. I grew up in Needville, Richmond, Houston and Katy, TX. I attended Missouri Military Academy and graduated from Taylor High School in 2003. I was very athletic growing up. Baseball and football were the main sports I played. Afterwards, I moved to Boston, MA for 4 years where I did Criminal Justice in college, and where I also witnessed up close when the Red Sox broke the curse and won the pennant & World Series against the New York Yankees (I was in the center of Kenmore Sq during both the ensuing riots). I then came back to TX and settled in - going back-and-forth from Houston to Austin. During this time, I worked for an IT company before moving on to study and practice massage therapy. I enjoy hypertrophy resistance training and activities in the water with my dog at the beach, creek or lake. The Hill of Life waterfalls is my favorite water spot in Austin. And jetskiing is what I enjoy most doing on the water.
