I was born and raised in Long Beach, California. I graduated from Jordan High School where I was involved in football and track. I then graduated from the University of California at Long Beach in 1977 with a Bachelor of Science degree in Criminal Justice and continued my education by obtaining a law degree from the University of Tulsa.

I am married to Judy White, a beautiful Brazilian girl I met while on a mission trip to the Amazon Rain Forest. We have five adult children.

I try to stay active playing tennis and gardening. I am a member of Evergreen Baptist Church and work in adult education.
