I grew up in Fleming County, Kentucky, but have lived in Meade County since 1990 with my wife, Melissa.  We live in Flaherty and have two adult children, Ryan and Makayla.  I have taught at Flaherty Elementary School for most of my career (see Experience link).  

I attended Berea College where I was privileged to compete on both the Cross-country and Track and Field teams.  I have continued to run long distances competing in several races of marathon distance or longer.  I am partial to running on dirt trails and enjoy running at Otter Creek Park in Meade County as often as possible.

My greatest blessing in life is to serve my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.  My wife and I worship with Flaherty Baptist Church where I also serve as senior pastor.  

It is an honor and blessing to spend my days with the students and staff at Flaherty Elementary School.  Whether I am teaching Physical Education, assisting with reading groups, or coaching cross-country at the school, I am grateful for the opportunity to be a part of Meade County schools.
