I am a native Austinite and was born and raised in Westlake Hills.   My parents wanted to move out to the country and purchased a 1 ½ acre lot on Buckeye Trail two years before I was born.  The lot offered a downtown view and they built one of the first swimming pools in Westlake Hills when I was an infant.   My father served as President of the Eanes School Board and was active in changing Eanes from a county school to an Independent School District.

I was a door-to-door salesman for Fuller Brush Company throughout college and knocked on the large majority of the doors in Westlake Hills, Lakeway, and many neighborhoods of west Austin.   I hold a real estate broker’s license for over 20+ years.
