After graduating from Gallaudet University in 1995, I started work at Central Texas Council of the Deaf, Inc. as the Interpreter Intern Program coordinator, and Specialist Computer Programmer. As coordinator, this included conducting mentoring projects, seminars, statewide workshops, lab activities, and self-evaluations. As Specialist Computer Programmer I constructed a office billing computerized system. And at Sign of the Times, Inc. as Vocational Training Workshop Coordinator/Instructor presented workshops, taught and advise clients, and served as Program Director researches, plans, develops and implements one or more of the office’s professional services.
In 2002, my colleague and I went on a Deaf Mission Trip to La Cedia, Honduras, developed LESHO, Honduran Sign Language, dictionary video.
In serving the greater Waco community, I am a member of the Advisory Committee for Mclennan Community College (MCC)’s Interpreter Preparation Program. I served as President of the Waco Association of the Deaf for 10 years and remains a member of this organization. I’ve taught ASL classes, for credit and continuing education, at MCC.
A few of my hobbies include working on my classic Volkswagon vehicles, going camping and hiking. I currently reside in Waco, Texas with my wife, Paula, and daughters, Sophia and Alissa.
