There’s an old saying in Texas that goes something like this… “Never ask a man if he’s from Texas. If he is, he’ll tell you. If he isn’t, why embarrass him?”
I am a got-here-as-fast-as-I-could Texan who made a second home in Jerusalem, Israel. I have a BS in Economics from the University of Texas at Arlington, and a Master’s in Non-profit Management and Leadership from The Hebrew University in Jerusalem.
I have owned, bought, sold and run numerous small businesses in the past few years of my life. At the same time, I’ve grown increasingly interested in politics, social innovation, and community development in the 3rd world.
Since the age of 21, I have been strongly involved in ministry and volunteering. I am an overseeing elder of a local congregation, a board member of six different organizations, and travel frequently to foreign lands to minister, consult and teach on a variety of subjects.
But do not worry, I don’t take myself too seriously – as you’ll quickly see in my blogs. Life is best lived with a smile on your face and a good sense of humor.
Lastly, and most importantly, I’m married to a woman who is way out of my league, and I have two kids that put more joy in my heart than a million double rainbows.
