Hi there and welcome to my page. Here's a little bit of info about myself. I am of Irish-Welsh descent and my family immigrated from the Wicklow Mountains area in eastern Ireland. We originally settled in Georgia in the mid 1800's but moved to east Texas and west Louisiana shortly after the Civil War. I was born in 1970 in a little town in north Louisiana named Springhill, but I grew up in Texarkana, Arkansas. I graduated from Arkansas High (Pig Soooiieee!) in 1989 and began my journey through life. I attended the University of Arkansas and then decided to challenge myself and serve my country by joining the United States Marine Corps. This was a tradition started by my Great-great-great-grandfather Hamilton James Phillips in the 1870's and most males in my family have served either as Ministers or Marines. In addition to providing a natural balance within the family, it has also created an interesting mix of holiday topics. I served active and reserve for 14 years and hung up my sword and retired my boots in the fall of 2004. This decision was made to allow more focus on long term career goals. I met my beautiful and brilliant wife, Lindsey in 1992, but it took me five years until 1997 to realize what I was missing. I convinced her to go out with me and in 1999 we were married. We moved to Frisco Texas in 2001 and quickly fell in love with our little town. We share our home with 4 cats, 3 dogs, 4 fish, a turtle and a frog. Our hearts and home are always open to abused, neglected or unloved animals. I enjoy anything outdoors, read anything I can get my hands on, only drive Jeeps, love movies and absorb all of the obscure trivia I can find. I still can't grow my hair past my collar without feeling like a hippy and I won't eat tofu.
