I honestly think I was born in the wrong state because I love Texas. But I was born and raised in Portland, OR, live in Eugene, OR for almost a year, spent 8 years in South Florida, and moved to El Paso in 2015. I have a beautiful wife and amazing daughter. We are huge Disney fans and try to make a trip to a Disney park at least every couple of years. I've been able to get my daughter into Marvel, Star Wars, and other nerdly things I enjoy. When I have some time to myself I spend it reading (everything from comic books to non-fiction) and watching sports. Plus I also enjoy training different fighting and self defense disciplines like kickboxing and Krav Maga.
