I was born in Stuttgart Germany and emigrated to the United States in 1956. I became a United States citizen in 1960. I lived in Germany again from 1960-1963 and on and off again until 1972. When in the United States, I lived in El Paso. I attended the University of Texas at El Paso, receiving a BA degree in 1976 whereupon I attended St. Mary's School of Law.
