I grew up in Austin, TX in the 1980s and my favorite memory is playing hide & seek with every kid on the block until the late evening. When I heard the infamous whistle from my dad, I knew it was time to get home. I’m the youngest of two children, my parents are still married for over 50+ years, my entire family still lives in Texas and I played soccer, football, basketball, ran track, and threw the shot put, and discus. I had a bad stutter throughout elementary school which made me very insecure mainly due to the constant teasing.
My addiction to alcohol began around the age of 10 and turned into full-blown alcoholism in High School and continued until the age of 42. As an adult, I married, got divorced, raised 2 sons, and worked for various nonprofits for 18 years. I co-founded an Insurance company, a catering business, and a mountain bike racing team. My free time has included indoor soccer, competitive mountain bike racing, playing guitar & singing, and camping adventures with my sons.
I gained my sobriety from alcohol on January 1st, 2019, and have not had a drop since. Six months later, I started this project as a tool for documenting my journey and inspiring others to do the same. I’m very encouraged and excited that you are here and willing to work on the most important thing on this planet, which is you.
