I am a native of Jackson County, WNC and have taught here in Catawba county since 1988.  I attended Lees-McRae College ('84) and Western Carolina University ('87, '91).

I have 2 sons Nevin (Army veteran, now Appalachian State & National Guard) and Aaron (UNC-CH).  

I enjoy personal fitness and outdoor activities, sports, music, and travel. 

My wife, Tonya, and I live in Hickory.

It is my goal that all our students develop an appreciation for healthy active lifestyles.
