I grew up and attended school in South Atlanta at Forest Park High School and have been working with teenagers in several capacities since leaving Atlanta. I met my wife in the Smoky Mountains while taking a group of students to Dollywood and have never been able to leave.  I have lived in Roane County, TN; Oak Ridge, TN; Jackson, TN; Hickman County, TN; Smyrna, TN; Clarksville, TN; Dickson, TN; and now reside about 60 miles north of Chattanooga.  

I am an avid Georgia Bulldogs fan.  In the fall months, you will find me sitting in a deer stand in free time or spending time with my two little girls.  

When I was in fifth grade in 1989, I read a poem that sparked in me a love for history and literature that would never be quenched.  As I read about Paul Revere's midnight ride to warn of an impending attack by the British, I began feel a passion arising within me at that young.  My desire is to place inside each of the young people that come to my class daily the seed of similar passions that could grow into the driving force for their future aspirations.
