I was born in Big Spring, Texas and raised in Midland. In 1962, while attending Baylor, I ran for State Representative from Midland at the age of 21. I lost that election in a runoff by 42 votes. Deciding politics was not for me, I graduated Baylor with a BA and moved on to the University of Texas law school. There, I won the Moot Court competition arguing before the Supreme Court of Texas sitting en banc. After acquiring my JD, I spent forty years in trial law and international business and banking.
Today, I live in Midland with my wife Jane Hellinghausen and two rottweilers.
I enjoy writing and working with the Permian Basin Bookies.
