My wife and I have been married since 2016. Without her, I would not be who I am today. One of our most common inside jokes is about her being my biggest (actually only) fan. She always supports all of my crazy ideas with enthusiasm, and she has more confidence in my success than I do. Thanks for the continued support.
My 2 daughters were born in 2019 and 2020. After the initial anxiety of having a girl wore off, I was surprised with another little girl. The love these 2 show me is like no other, and is the whole reason behind this website. I’m leaving this short on purpose as I hope that the letters and stories expressed throughout the website convey my love for daughters.
I grew up in a household where both parents worked their tails off to provide for my siblings and I. No job was too small, and no job went unfinished at work or at home. I took this same mentality into my life. I had miscellaneous jobs while in high school, and then I joined the Army for 5 years as a mechanic. After moving to the South Texas and experiencing the extreme heat and humidity down here, I jumped ship and started college. During my early years of college, I landed a job at a Specialty Chemical Company working in their logistics procurement department. I’m not sure they knew what they were getting into by hiring me, but I continue to work there and have progressed through various logistics, procurement, and supply chain roles.
I started college at a great local community college and eventually transferred to a smaller university to pursue a double major in accounting and finance. When I graduated from this university, I was already working in logistics. This pushed me to pursue my masters in supply chain management. While going for my master’s, I got more into analytics at work. This fed right into me going after another masters (in analytics) once I graduated with my supply chain management degree. In all, I’ve been a pretty steady student since leaving the Army in 2012. I enjoy learning, and I can’t seem to get enough of the school environment. Being surrounded with like mind individuals that are on their own personal quest to better than they were yesterday is definitely rewarding.
