I was born and raised on a ranch in Llano and, like many country kids, I couldn’t wait to get away and see the world. After graduating from Llano High School, I attended Principia College in Illinois where I received a degree in Environmental Science. After college, I lived in St. Louis, Missouri; Portland, Oregon; Leelanau, Michigan; and ultimately San Diego, California. I traveled extensively to South America, Asia, and Europe, and I became an entrepreneur and a surfer. After more than 20 years away from Llano, I finally returned with fresh eyes- able to see what it was that attracts so many people to our quaint town and to the beautiful Hill Country. I now live on the family ranch north of Llano in Babyhead, which has been in my family for over a hundred years.
In addition to being a semi-bonafide cattleman, I am also involved with Llano civic life, including being a founding member of the Llano Earth Art Fest, President of the Llano Main Street Association, and Board Member of the Friends of the Llano Red Top Jail. I have written two books about Texas and I am the creator of GoLlano.com. I stake my reputation on being honest, knowledgeable, and hardworking. From my experience, I can see Llano from both an insider's an outsider's perspective. I want to show you what it is that makes Llano so unique and help you find your own piece of this Hill Country paradise.
Take pleasure in doing something you've always wanted to do -- that's the kind of life that is waiting for you in the Texas Hill Country and Highland Lakes.Contact Us
