After the Military and several other jobs I started my career in corrections.  Retired in 2006  from T.D.C.J.-I.D. (prison system)  27 yrs 4 months as a corectional Supervisor.  I worked at several types of institutions. From Minimum to maximum security and Maximum Segregation Units. I have several Mid Management certificates. Including the Governor's Mid-Managent Course. This is attended by a few selected employees of all  state agencies.

My Interests

   I'm not a Master at what I like to do. Such as piddle with engraving, wood burning, and making furniture

for my gran-children. Most of all I really enjoy is spending Any time with my Family.
