Fun Fact(s)

I am related to the Allen Brothers who founded Houston, Texas.


I was born in 1965 in Galveston, Texas.  At the age of 19 became a prison guard for Texas Dept of Criminal Justice.  I then became a Texas police officer in 1986, at the age of 21, with Harris County until my retirement in January, 2016.  I was assigned to patrol for 20 years.  I served the remaining 10 years in the Civil Division which included being a Baliff for one of the busiest courts in the state. 

I started TKD at the age of 10 and obtained my Black Belt at the age of 15.  I have competed in approximately 40 tournaments before becoming a professional kickboxer for a short period in the 1980s.  During that time I was ranked 3rd in the world in my division and fought on ESPN in 1985 as semi-main event.  I was trained by world champion Ishmael Robles in Galvestion, Texas for 10 years.  I have also taught TKD over the years at several different locations. 
I have been married to my wife, Teri for 28 years, and we have 2 adult children, including our other children - 2 cats and a dog.  Our heart in life is to try to glorify God in everything that we do.
