Atticus was raised outside of Alpine, Texas and learned an appreciation for the rugged, wild, and mountainous part of West Texas from a young age. Hunting, horses, 4-H, and Boy Scouts (eventually earning the rank of Eagle Scout) took up most of his time growing up in Brewster County. Whether on the family ranch, in the Big Bend, Balmorhea, or the other beautiful areas West Texas has to offer a young man, absorbing knowledge of this region was part of his upbringing.
Upon graduating from high school he attended Patrick Henry College in Northern Virginia focusing on international relations and security issues and studying the Russian language. After graduation Atticus worked in security and defense in the Washington DC area, then overseas before returning to his hometown of Alpine. His passion for the people and community of West Texas would not allow him to stay away for long.
Still an avid hunter and lover of the outdoors, Atticus continues to camp, hike, and backpack as much as possible in the Big Bend and Transpecos region. When not out of cell service he stays busy as a member of the vestry at Holy Cross Anglican Church and a leader in Alpine’s Trail Life USA troop helping young men cultivate their appreciation and knowledge of outdoor skills and character development.
