About Born and for the most part raised in Dallas surrounded by the development of market research and immersed in advertising at a young age. Past professions included authoring two books and running a children’s bookstore. I am a professional genealogist which means my days are spent writing. My real talent lies in solving problems through the use of land records and platting. Today we follow the money. Before the 20th century we follow the land. My other life involves renovating this 1928 bungalow. Slowly. Very slowly.
