Who am I?

A foggy day at the ranch

A foggy day at the ranch

I am a man, a husband, a father, and a grandfather. I am a retired neurologist with interest in behavior, a relatively new rancher, and a humanist. I retired from medicine and live at Medicine Spirit Ranch, our cattle ranch near Fredericksburg, Texas. Trudy, my wife of almost 44 years, and I enjoy our quaint German community. I love Border collies with rarely a day passing when I don’t stand in awe of their intelligence and athleticism. We travel, golf, and volunteer in our community.

We have lived, worked, and studied in Minneapolis, London, Moscow, as well as multiple locations throughout Texas. These experiences, no doubt, influence my descriptions and beliefs.

Much of my earlier works were scientific, medical, and advice for persons suffering from or caring for those with neurological disorders. Now I aspire to write for popular audiences, especially describing the wisdom expressed in patient stories, the wonder of Border collies, and the enjoyment of retired life in the Texas Hill Country.

Recently, our barns were featured on the Ride Television Network show “Wild About Barns.” I think Trudy and I look pretty good!

    Hi Tom,

    I enjoy your posts…I wanted to get in touch with you regarding a new TV series I am producing called Wild About Barns. It will begin airing on a new network RIDE TV in January 2015. I came across your Ranch in the book Stables by Kathyn Masson. Each episode of Wild About Barns profiles a historic barn, a backyard barn and a show barn. We would really like to profile ya’lls barn for the first season.

    Check out our FB page Wild About Barns and like us. We are working on our website now and that will be up in a few months.

    Please contact me if you are interested in working with us. We LOVE you ranch and the barns.
