I was born and raised in Alice, Texas, upon graduation I went to SWTSU in San Marcos, Texas where I majored in Sociology. For the last 17 years I have been employed by Communities in Schools a 501C3 Program as a Case Manager for at risk students. Through my job I am able to do what I most enjoy, helping others.

I moved to Corpus Christi, TX in 1992, that is when I attended my first TRE show. I attended many in-town court functions, but in 2007 I actually joined the Texas Riviera Empire. In 2009 I had the extreme pleasure of becoming Emperor XXII and reigning with my partner Empress Laura Martinez. We were blessed to have very dedicated and hard working line members that made our year one of the most successful ever. After 16 years together, Laura and I were married in August, 2014. That was the greatest day ever and one I always only dreamed of.

I currently serve on the board of TRE. I am also a sponsor of our GSA at our high school. Bringing awareness of our GLBT history and present issues to our youth is very important, and I am glad to be able to have this opportunity. They are working on various projects, to give back to their community.

I am very proud to be a member of this great organization. I look forward to serving our courts and our Queen Mother, Nicole the Great. If I can be of assistance to you please feel free to contact me at your convenience.

From the heart, through the court, for the community

Emperor XXII of TRE
