I am an attorney in Texas. Previously I studied law at St. Mary's University, and I was a graduate student of English literature at The University of Texas at San Antonio, where I also took photos for the student newspaper, The Paisano. My photography has appeared in the San Antonio Current and was featured in vol. 3 of the Sagebrush Review, UTSA's literary journal.

Okay, so that was damn terrible. So was Cambodia. I've only known Clay for a short time, but I can assure you that the man is an epoch of true sophistication and class unto himself, his family, and the rest of us lo-fi, tertiary characters.
