Working with UNT students. They are a blast!

Successfully transitioning a contract management account to total self-op.

We once had the [university] president bringing us catfish to clean and cook for him.

Still searching for the perfect burger.

Not sure if it is a fad or not, but I always thought garlic mashed potatoes was a cop-out.

I’m cool with our current time. I would have liked to get in on the ground floor of Microsoft or Apple.
Good beach, good book, good friends and good wine, mixed in with wife and daughter.
An old Martin guitar. I also have a 1954 Seeburg jukebox, the model from “Happy Days.”
