About me

My wife Christy and I live in Cullman AL. We have a daughter Kaitlyn that graduated last spring from UNA.

I am really excited to be part of the Athens City Schools family. 

I’m looking forward to seeing what we can accomplish together.

Go Eagles!


Roll Tide and Roar Lions! Yes my wife and I watch a lot of football.
