favorite book: Dictionary (I have yet to use the word "hypertrophy" at a tea party but maybe one day)

what's on your nightstand right now?: Five Sports Illustrated magazines and a day-old glass of water
favorite food: Tacos al carbon with fresh avocado slices and a side of beans and rice
favorite vacation spot: Portland, OR area, and I hope to one day visit Antarctica
hobbies/interests off campus: Seeing movies with my lovely wife and composing songs that only I could tolerate.
activities on campus: Trying to stare down the squirrels on campus but to no avail
favorite class to teach & why: Choir, because I love the look on the students' faces after we have just sung something extremely well.
who/what/where inspires you and why? My parents, wife and the elderly who have a positive outlook on life. I am inspired by honesty, integrity and the pursuit of excellence in one's field or talent. I am inspired when I go to my church in San Antonio because of the extensive work that we do with the homeless in the downtown area.
why do you like Schreiner?: Because I enjoy reminding my friends repeatedly that "no, our school is not next to the Shiner brewery." I also think that we have talented and wonderful students and I adore Ma Parker in Weir. She gives the best hugs around.
