About Me

Here’s what you need to know about me:

I teach sociology at Hardin-Simmons University.  I have the greatest job.

I have the most beautiful and wonderful wife on the planet.

I have 3 kids whose antics make me so happy.

I like my students a lot.  If you are one, I’m talking about you.  Except one of you. You know who you are   😉

I am a Christian, and I love talking to students about faith (or lack of faith).

I watch too much TV.

I listen to way too many podcasts about news, politics, comedy, sports, and snacks.

I’ve never been in a fist fight.  Ever.

I think everything that comes out of Tracy Morgan’s mouth is hilarious.

I think you should always defend people who are not present to defend themselves.

I love Taco Bell.  Every year, I try to get my wife to take me to Taco Bell on my birthday.  Every year I fail.

I have never played golf.

I like to cook.  I’m not good.  I didn’t say I was.

Big sports fan.  Go Texans.  Go Astros.  Go Rockets.  Go Longhorns.

I think Twitter is a wretched hive of scum and villainy, combining the worst things about the internet with the worst things about humanity.  In an unrelated note, I kind of like Twitter.

Coke over Pepsi.  Longhorns over Aggies.  Dogs over cats.  Seinfeld over Friends.  PC over Mac, but iPhone over Android.

I watch horror movies and action movies when my wife leaves town.  Most recently, I watched “The Man with the Iron Fists.”  It was awesome, in the way that really terrible things are also sort of awesome.

I want to teach a class called “The Sociology of Zombies.”  This may never happen, but it is constantly rolling around in my head.

I hate coffee, and I’m tired of being judged for this.  Don’t judge me, coffee people.

I’ve never been to Europe, and I have absolutely no problem with this fact.

When I was a kid, my favorite arcade game was called “Bad Dudes.”  That is a real name of a real thing.  Every time you beat one of the bosses, the character held up his fist and said, “I’m bad!”  My brother and I beat it once, and it cost us about $10 in quarters each.  Best $10 I ever spent.

  1. Next time I see you, we’ll get in a fist fight and then go to Taco Bell… then watch a horror movie.
