    Recently retired from Metro Nashville Public Schools after 22 years. I am married to my wife Kimberly Regina for more than 14 years. Together we have 5 sons, 1 daughter, 2 daughter-in-laws, 11 grandchildren, and 2 great grandchildren. I enjoy writing songs, playing video games (XBOX and Pokemon Go), critiquing media (movies and TV series), being outside, and serving others. I believe that when we work to empower others we become the light that we so desperately need.

    I have been in Maury County Schools for 3 years. Before coming here, I taught in Williamson County Schools for 17 years. I have been married for 38 years to my wife, Lisa. We have three married daughters and 6 grandkids (5 granddaughters and 1 grandson). I love to hunt, camp and enjoy the outdoors with them all! My favorite hobbies include reading, painting, drawing, puzzles, and collecting old marbles. One of my favorite quotes is by Abraham Lincoln "Always bear in mind that your own resolution to succeed is more important than any other." I look forward to seeing many successes here in the days ahead.
