I am a 1988 graduate of South Caldwell High School where I participated on the swimming team and sang in the chorus for three years. I attended UNC Charlotte where I received a BA degree in History, Secondary Social Studies Education in 1993. I also minored in Journalism and was Editor in Chief of UNCC's paper, The University Times, during my senior year. In 2002, I graduated from Appalachian State University with an MA in History, Secondary Education with a Social Studies/Community College focus. I began teaching as an adjunct instructor in the Humanities and Social Science Department at Caldwell Community College and Technical Institute in 2003 where I have taught the American History and World Civilization classes. I have also been fortunate to quest lecture in the annual Holocaust class and have developed a class on the Vietnam War. I am currently working on developing a class on African American History. In 2009, I began writing a history column for the Lenoir News Topic. My column is usually published in the weekly edition of the paper.

At school I like to involve myself in the work of education and supporting students.  I sponsor the Fellowship of Christian Athletes and Students club at the high school.

When I am not at work, I enjoy time with my wife, Beverly, and two kids - Ben and Olivia. I also an avid swimmer, reader, writer, and hiker. You can also find me as one of the voices of Spartan Football on home Friday nights. In the winter, I also coach the Spartan Men's and Women's swim teams.
