I was born in Chattanooga, Tennessee but I grew up in suburban Signal Mountain. I am a graduate of Red Bank High School, Hiwassee College and Middle Tennessee State University.
I have been married for 13 years to my wife Laura. We have been a couple since 1998 when we met in a singles ministry at a local church.
Laura and I grew up in Chattanooga where we currently lived. Shortly after getting married we moved to Murfreesboro where we lived for almost four years.
We have a couple of “fur-children” who are a great part of our lives. Cody the dog and Mei li the hamster keep things interesting around our house.
My wonderful parents Gary and Shelia along with sister Shannon live in the Chattanooga area. I have a grandmother and grandfather who live in the area too.
For 8 years I worked for Olan Mills Church Directories. Currently I am a Freelance Consultant to Businesses and Individuals. My past work includes working in TV and radio.
Laura and I are both United Methodist Christians and are very active members of White Oak UMC in Red Bank. I am a firm believer in the grace and redeeming love of Jesus Christ who came to offer us a new way of life through a relationship with Him and in active participation in the Church.
For 10 years I have been active in the Alumni Association at Hiwassee College where I am a lifetime member of the Alumni Board of Governors and serve on its executive committee.
My interests are varied and diverse. I enjoy religion, social issues, politics, media, technology, music, cooking and sports.
I am a certified, card carrying Geek. Embracing this fact has helped me become a better person I think. I tell others to embrace their inner “geekness” too.
