A Few Odd Bits about Me

  • For eight years, I was taught by Hungarian monks who came to Texas to escape the Communists during World War II.
  • I self-published a book of poetry in high school. And no, you cannot read it. Thank God, it was before the Internet was invented. But you can buy my poetry teacher’s book here.
  • I was selected to be a White House Intern … in 1999 …. during the Lewinski trial. I was in the Office of Vice President Al Gore, in the Climate Change Task Force.
  • The dean of my college would not allow me to wear shoes to my own graduation. It’s a long story…
  • I married my high school sweetheart. And then she became a divorce lawyer. Go figure…
  • My only brother has never been convicted of a crime but he lives in a cell. He is a monk living at Our Lady of Dallas.
  • I wanted to name my first-born daughter after a character from J.R.R. Tolkien’s “The Lord of the Rings.” And somehow, my wife agreed. Epidurals are AWESOME.
  • My wife wanted to name our second daughter after the author of “To Kill a Mockingbird.” How could I say no? My wife is AWESOME.
  • I once played the part of a pimp in a performance of The Who’s “Tommy.” I had to sing this song and smoke a cigarette on stage. No, you will never hear me sing it again.
  • In prison, they call me Miss Piggy Bank“Weeeeeeeeee!!!!!”
