My Profile

I was born in Wichita Falls, Texas…

I grew up in Jacksboro, Texas (until 5th grade) and Lone Star, Texas and graduated from Daingerfield HS in 1980…

I graduated from Midwestern State University in Wichita Falls when it was still ok to have a mascot named INDIAN… (now they are the Mustangs)…

I have lived in numerous places in Texas, but enjoyed Fort Worth the most.  I have lived in three countries outside of the US: Ukraine, Kazakhstan and Rep of Georgia…

It’s amazing to think a guy from Lone Star, Texas has been this blessed to live this life!

On November 11, 2016 I had Whipple surgery to remove a tumor from my pancreas.  After months of chemo and radiation, God allowed me to return to Ukraine in September 2017.  I’m still on a journey…
