In addition to my career, I am equally devoted to a few non-profit organizations. I previously served ATX Safer Streets as Business Development Manager and, Committee Chairman for our first official fundraiser. I continue to serve as Secretary on our board of directors. Together, we are advocating for an expansion of alternative transportation to alleviate impaired driving. ATX Safer Streets is featured in Austin Monthly's June Issue. (Read Here)
As of December 2014, I began serving the Austin Travis County Sobriety Center committee. Co-Chaired by County Judge Nancy Hohengarten and, Attorney; Andy Brown.
I served on the board of directors of New Milestones Foundation for six years. During that time I was Committee Chairman for 'Bridging the Gap'. This is our annual gala, which I dedicated four consecutive years to. I was board Secretary and served on our Executive Committee as well. New Milestones Foundation is the fundraising arm for Austin Travis County Integral Care (ATCIC).
Both New Milestones Foundation and ATCIC provide support for those with mental illness. Our gala in 2014 included Dr. Johnston, dean of the new Dell medical school, Senator Kirk Watson as our emcee, and Honorary Chair; Valerie Newberg.
As for 2018, I am committee chairman for Mexic-arte's "Taste of Mexico", a fundraiser that supports the museum's education programs. Following a record year for the event, I was invited to join the board of directors, and have committed to chair "Taste of Mexico" for 2019.
When I am not working, I like to fence, row, hike the trail on town lake, hang out at the U.T. Club, or enjoy good food and good company.
