I was born March 23, 1962 in a small hospital in Beaumont Texas which has since become a mental institution for the insane. My Mother is still the only hero I've ever known. My youth was spent in a hot steam bath fog, the Beaumont Independent School District...released on good behavior to the cool steam mist bank of Northern California to start and finish high school as a fighting Mendocino Cardinal...football and of course a liberal dose of flora and fauna ya wanna? Carter and pump line carousels led to a Texas Reunion fleeing from a communist led inflation. Still clutching Texas Terra Firma I've been fascinated with everything from making Strawberry Preserves at a cake factory in Arlington, TX to working 90 miles offshore south of Houma Louisiana on a Western Oceanic WildCat Rig. I am now and still a part of the family business TexasPixelMagic.com and loving life and my two Beautiful Children!
