I'm a USCF Senior TD and a USCF Life member. I am a Life member of the Texas Chess Association and am currently serving as TCA Vice-president and chairman of the TCA Bylaws Committee. I have served as Secretary and Vice-President of the TCA in the past as well as Chairman and representative on the TCA Scholastic Committee and as the Region V Director. I founded the Huntsville (TX) Chess Club back in 1984 and I have served as President and primary organizer until just a few years ago. I am a cofounder and organizer of the Temple (TX) Chess Club (2010).
I currently teach Statistics and Developmental Mathematics at Temple College. I have taught Mathematics at Blinn College-Bryan Campus and Lee College-Huntsville Center. I was also an Adjunct in Physics at Sam Houston State University and in Mathematics at Angelina College.
