Work Related:

I like best receiving new projects and working on those projects with a select group of a few people. In that manor we can share ideas, research new technologies, and get an application up and running quickly. Once some of the basic hurdles are overcome, you can then take what was learned from research and initial testing and then apply what was learned as basic standards to the rest of the project. I am a people person, and I like working with people and the challenge of solving problems.

Personal/ Pre-Career:

Texas born Texas made. I was born in Houson, Texas and grew up in Arlington, Texas, with a two year stay in Chicago, Illinois between the ages of 2 and 4. I graduated high school at Arlington Sam Houston and obtained my Associate in Applied Science/Computer Science Major at Tarrant County College at Fort Worth and Bachelor of Business Administration/Accounting Major from the University of North Texas at Denton.

I bought and sold Real Estate to put me through college. In 2010, I obtained my real estate license and become a Realtor® with GRI, SFR designations, and member of the Technical Committee at the Greater Fort Worth Association of Realtors®.

Currently I reside in Arlington with great children, beautiful grand children and a beautiful wonderful wife.

My parents came from a town in Louisiana with the same last name Plaucheville.

I was born in Houston and grew up in Arlington. In High School, I played most all the sports baseball, football, track, first chair trumpet, and member of the national honor society.

I have three children and five beautiful grandchildren. When my children were younger, I coached indoor outdoor soccer and little league for 7 1/2 years, and on the North Arlington Little League board. Coaching allowed me to both return something back to the community, and interact with kids in a positive way teaching basic principals to the little minds.

Two are ER nurses (me, well I faint at the sight of a needle, and some of the experiments they did on me, never worked). My oldest worked as an ER nurse at Parkland, and did not like the way her scrubs fit. She designed a few patterns, started a little company from my game-room, and wound up selling the company worth several million today. (No I didn’t get a cut, but she does love me).

I put myself through college buying and selling small houses. The head of my school’s department placed me in my first career job in the field I majored after graduation. And that job helped pay for my second degree in accounting at night school – of which I was most grateful, and which allowed me to work closely (on the computer side) with the companies controller and accounting department.

Early Career: On my first job, I worked my way up quickly from third shift computer operator to operations manager, and into programming. After being there over 7 years, the companies operations were to be moved to Houston, and I therefore made the hard decision not to transfer.

After my first job, I worked at several computer consulting companies, and because of my accounting degree I was always paired working with CPA firms on the consulting software side. This meant working with companies all over Dallas and Fort Worth, sometimes traveling outside the area.

During this time I designed, developed, wrote, modified, and implemented both new and existing application software, wrote a development tools (tools that generated programming code).
