I am a native Houstonian who, after completing my education, served in the US Air Force-Military Police. After the service, I joined Southern Pacific Railroad as a special investigator and worked all over the Southwest US investigating theft, smuggling and other crimes. In the 80s, I joined the Harris County Sheriff's Department followed by the Harris County Constable's Office where I rose through the ranks until becoming Assistant Chief. I was chosen as the McKay Citizen of the Year by the Lake Houston Area Chamber of Commerce in 2007. I retired in 2006 and founded the Tribune Newspapers, with my wife Cynthia. I am a golfer and have written extensively about golf courses throughout the US, Europe, the Caribbean and Canada. I am an award winning photographer whose photographs appear frequently in The Tribunes. When not golfing or fishing, I am hanging out with my good friend, Cash.
