Myron Hess
Principal, Law Office of Myron Hess PLLC; Tributary Consulting
When not working on legal and policy issues related to water quantity and quality, Myron likes to head outdoors in search of a bird, whale, crayfish, praying mantis, or just a cool plant. He also enjoys exploring Texas streams and springs, listening to singer-songwriters, traveling, and learning about new developments in science. Myron traces his love of the outdoors to his childhood days on a farm in north Texas. His fascination with nature led him to major in wildlife and fisheries sciences at Texas A&M University and his time as a teacher and school administrator with responsibility for middle-school boarding students redirected him to law school at the University of Texas.
