I am married and have 2 children (2nd & 5th grade).  After a few years in the business world, my career goals shifted and I began teaching and coaching in 2004. This is my 3rd school district.  Previous districts included Gaston County Schools (Ashbrook HS) and Kannapolis City Schools (A.L. Brown HS).  I began teaching at Hickory Ridge in 2019 and currently serve as our offensive coordinator & quarterbacks coach.    I have thoroughly enjoyed my time here at Hickory Ridge.  GO BULLS!!!  HORNS UP!!!
