I have been involved in the progressive movement within Houston since the 1970s. I am a collector of political memorabilia and classic bikes. I am married with one daughter who attends UT Austin. I am a long-time friend of DSA here in Houston and have been a dues-paying member myself since the beginning of the year.

I am heavily involved with DSA and would like to help the Houston chapter establish meaningful relationships with other progressive organizations in the area. I have ties to Working America, Texas Organizing Project, Communist Party USA, Houstonians for Bernie Sanders (I played an active role in Bernie’s campaign throughout the process), as well as many of the unions within the Houston area.[7]
