When I entered Benson as a freshman, I decided I wanted to try out for the football team. This was probably one of the best decisions of my young life. It eventually played an important part in getting me into college which was an east coast Ivy League school and led me into the computerization of the financial services industries.

I married my high school sweetheart and we raised our two sons in Pennsylvania and New Jersey. Our oldest son is a graduate of Drexel University and a project manager working in Houston and our youngest son is a graduate of Cornell University and is a part owner of a successful landscaping company in the San Francisco area. In the late 80's we relocated to the Dallas/Fort Worth area where we are currently living.
