Things that you wonÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t find on his LinkedIn profile (youÃ¢â‚¬â„¢re not actually supposed to have access to his LinkedIn profile), that he will include here:
He spent all of his young life and a large part of his adult life around cows. He grew up on a farm with about 1000 acres in crops and 500 acres in pasture in Central Texas. Like many farm kids, he got as far away as possible as soon as possible. Later in his life, his mom died. His dad developed Parkinson's, and he promised him he would never have to go to a nursing home. He wound up moving next door. His dad kept agile by continuing to do ranching chores to almost the very end of his life, including training cows to run from up to 2 miles away to get oats, molasses, and nose runs every day at precisely 5 p.m. From his dadÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s perspective, his job was to keep him in oats and molasses.
He started out to be a research chemist. He realized in the lab one day that the reason he got a corporate-endowed research grant was to make Agent Orange more deadly. (There had been no reference to Agent Orange by trade name or chemical name or to the company that would be using his work when he started the project.) He transferred to the business school.
Somewhat as a penance, he did volunteer work, mostly fundraising, for a leprosarium. He was known as that crazy American who shakes hands with lepers. To the surprise of his director, he never caught leprosy. Several decades later, he still hears from residents of the sanitarium who were children when he served there.
He enjoys animals. He has taken care of his horse, dogs, cats, a mouse, parrots, parakeets, rabbits, cows, pigs, sheep, goats, chickens, turkeys, ducks, pheasants, crickets, butterflies, fish, chameleons, horned toads,a gecko, snakes, and an orphan deer.
