I graduated from OU in 79 with a BA in English; in 1989 I graduated with an MPA (Economics) from Harvard University; in 1997, I earned a Master of Science in Finance (MSF) from Seattle University. I have a lovely wife to whom I have been married to for 26 years. I have a 23 year old daughter, Asia, who just graduated from Cooper Union in New York City with a bachelor in fine arts, BFA. I am so proud of my sooner heritage. I am Cherokee, Seminole and Irish.
