I am currently a law student at the Southern Methodist University Dedman School of Law in Dallas, Texas, but I will soon be embarking on a new adventure in New York City. In the meantime, I'm left aloft without no firm footing in either location, making it a period ripe for introspection. As an attempt to evaluate my past choices and to prepare for future challenges, I have resolved to maintain a journal of my musings--or more aptly, ramblings. I believe that human enterprise relies on the free and open exchange of ideas. That said, I have decided to make public my journey.
What may seem contrary to outward appearances, I come from humble beginnings and try to maintain as much modesty as I can. From the small town of West, Texas, both of my parents worked hard to provide for our family. Their dedication and perseverance are values I cherish and aim to emulate. My family serves as a constant reminder that no matter how far I go, I'll always be that chubby kid from the Texas countryside.
