Who I am:
I was born and raised in High Point, North Carolina. As a student I always enjoyed Math and Science and initially enrolled at NCSU with aspirations of a career in Mechanical Engineering. After working summers on the maintenance staff for a local golf course while in high school and helping prepare for a yearly LPGA event, I eventually changed majors and career goals and wound up having a 27 year career as a Golf Course Superintendent. Most of those years have been spent here in Martinsville where I met my wife and best friend, Kim who I have been married to for 17 years. We have been blessed with two daughters, ages 14 and 16.
For seven years now I have enjoyed coaching youth soccer and first became involved with Henry County Public Schools as an assistant coach for the Laurel Park Boys team in 2016-2017, and as Magna Vista Girls Varsity Coach in 2018, and am currently the JV and assistant Varsity Girls Coach. Yes, I know they are rivals. In large part this is how I realized that working with young people and helping them achieve by holding them to a high standard and helping guide them is way more rewarding than anything I have accomplished in any other field. I truly am excited about the curriculum that I am going to be teaching. I look forward to working with you all to help my students realize their full potential.
