I graduated from West Texas A&M University in Canyon, Texas and I am a US Navy Veteran that served honorably during Desert Storm I and Operation Provide Comfort with VFA – 132 F/A-18 squadron as an Avionics Technician. I was stationed in Jacksonville, Florida but I also served on the USS Coral Sea (CV-43), the USS Abraham Lincoln (CVN-72) and the USS Forrestal (CV-59).
I am very fortunate to be married to my beautiful bride, Judy. I am the proud father of two awesome kids, you will be able to tell, I have pictures of them are all over this website and my Facebook page. I have devoted my life to serving others and the community. The whole family has been serving at the Haltom City Senior Center and the Haltom City community since October of 2011. You can find out Mo about the work we are doing in the community by going to www.project938.org. You are welcome to join us serving the community.
All this would not have been possible just a few short years ago. In April of 2005, I had a large pituitary tumor removed from the base of my brain that had grown around my pituitary gland. Shortly after the successful pituitary surgery, my inherited Polycystic Kidney Disease started shutting down my kidney function.
Three months after the tumor removal, I had a procedure done to install a catheter tube in my abdomen to start peritoneal dialysis. Two weeks later I was on dialysis treatment every night. During the process, I maintained a pretty normal life of family, church, school and work. I maintained that routine for two years.
In August of 2007, I received a kidney for a transplant that my father donated to me. We are both doing great! Thanks Dad!
Now I live a pretty normal life of service, and I love to take pictures to capture amazing moments and freeze them in time.
If you have any questions about my journey, feel free to ask me. I am always willing to talk about my experiences if it can help some one else.
Let’s get to know one another and see if we are a match before we schedule a photo session. The lens sees all and records everything at that moment, and the lens always knows when the subject or photographer isn’t comfortable. Let’s make sure we are compatible and capture the best images possible.
