I grew up in Uncertain, Tx on the state line. I work at a catfish restaurant from the age of 13 to 22. Have a true love of cooking and learning. I now live in Tenaha, Tx and work at Tenaha ISD as the maintenance supervisor. Also In my 10 years at the school we have opened what is called tiger cafe. We cook fish, Bbq, boiled shrimp, fried shrimp and sell to patrons of the basketball games. I also have a high school Bbq team that just recently won a regional cookoff and is heading to state!! My nickname is Catfish.
