In addition to economics, I’ve gotten to do a lot of other fun things. I grew up in Lubbock, TX, where my parents own and operate Joyland Amusement Park. I played golf competitvely during my high school and undergrad years, and still play recreationally (current handicap: +0.2). Additonally, while in undergrad, I spent a semester in Washington DC interning for the Cato Institute. In my free time, I like to play golf and basketball, watch sports (go Mavs! go Cowboys!), and just be a fun guy.
