I was born in Michigan and from there moved to Maryland and then on to N.C. for college. After graduation I moved to Mississippi and then Puerto Rico and then on to Texas, where I have been since 1984. I have been married for over 25 years and my wife and I are the proud parents of four great kids. A lot of our time is centered around family, with our oldest two out of college and our two youngest children in high school. We love to travel and I am always looking for great travel deals. I had a sad day recently when we donated the pop-up camper we had had for years to charity. Many good memories!
An interesting fact about me - my oldest son and I were on the TV show "Who Wants to be a Millionaire?" as contestants - and winners - in 2001 back when Regis Philbin was the host. We were on for a special Father's Day edition with my wife and three other kids in the audience cheering us on. If you go to YouTube you can see our segment. Enter "Who Wants to be a Millionaire Father's Day Edition". You will see myself and my son Austin in the hotseat, back when Regis Philbin hosted. Great memories!
As far as me as a guest - and my family members traveling with me - we are easy-going and conscientious. I like the idea of airbnb and look forward to meeting hosts and having a more personal travel experience rather than staying at a sterile hotel.
