The majority of my life has been like everyone else. I grew up in a family of four, went to public schools (mainly in Houston), and generally made good decisions. I played high school basketball and my senior year was named 2nd team, All Greater Houston. After one year of Junior College basketball it was time to move on. Off to the University of Texas for the next 3 1/2 years. There I tended bar, played in a rock band, was a life guard, majored in Finance, and met the love of my life and future trophy bride, Suzi.
Professionally, I started with ConocoPhillips in Casper Wyoming for two years, then back to Houston for a 33 year career with EF Hutton…well kind of. Hutton became Shearson Lehman Hutton, then Shearson Lehman Brothers, then Smith Barney and Houston became Dallas, then Houston again, then Los Angeles, then back to Houston. After EF Hutton became Smith Barney, I left for Deutsche Bank, then Morgan Stanley. In May of 2016 I began Long Term Disability (MS related), after climbing to a position of Executive Director and Regional Manager of Morgan Stanley’s prestigius Private Wealth Management division. There were 8 Regional Managers of Private Wealth Management and my turf was the 12 state South Central Region. To find out more, go to the section “What I Have.”
