Ok... the easy stuff first. I was born in Tucson, went to high school here in Wichita Falls (OLD HIGH CLASS OF '99 REPRESENT!), and graduated college in Albuquerque. I'm happily married to my High School sweetheart Lindsey and we have a beautiful baby girl Madeline (named after one of the funniest women to ever live, Madeline Kahn.) I'm a huge geek, and proud of it. At any given time by belt buckle is either Ghostbusters, Superman or Batman, I have many shirts to match those belt buckles, and have more action figures on display in my house than my 8-year-old nephew has in his toy chest. Now for the more introspective stuff... My wife says that its quite obvious that I was born to entertain people. In a group of people, if I'm not cracking jokes, people come up and say, "Are you feeling ok?" Getting people to laugh at something I said or did, and I meant to make them laugh, is the best feeling in the world to me. Of course I've learned the hard way where and when it is not a good idea to try to make people laugh... like funeral homes or a police line up.
