Hi. I'm originally from Houston, TX. I grew up in Santa Barbara, CA. I attended NMMI in Roswell, NM, and Catalina Island School in CA where I graduated high school. My first love was aviation, but an accident when I was young nixed that. I have traveled a lot. I am a PADI certified scuba diver, an NPQ-1 certified volunteer fire fighter and hold a General Class ham radio license. I have a background in banking, real estate, and stock brokerage, undergraduate degrees in Finance and Paralegal Studies, and an MBA. I am a staff writer for the North Georgia News/Towns County Herald in north Georgia at present.
