I was born in Oceanside, California in Camp Pendleton, a Marine Corps base. My dad is/was a Marine. I grew up here in North Richland Hills, but most of my realitives live in small towns around the Corpus Christi area. This is my 4th year teaching. I have a Bachelors of Science in Mathematics from McMurry University in Abilene, TX in 2010. I got my diploma from Richland High School were I played baseball and basketball. Baseball is my passion though, started playing when I was 4. I played in college at McMurry. We won the American Southwest Conference Championship in 2008. I was Academic All Conference 2 years. I got married June 22, 2013 to Mrs. Alexis Gaona. She teaches 8th grade science and coaches here at Collins. We met in college at McMurry. We have a pitbull boxer mix dog named Calie that is awesome, and her fur makes a batman symbol on her chest. My wife and I love to camp, shoot guns, shoot our compound bows, fish, hunt, and play golf. We also enjoy country dancing now and then. We also love going to Texas Rangers baseball games. I have been a life long fan of the Rangers, Cowboys, and Mavericks. We went to a game in each of the years the Rangers went to the World Series.
