I started my career with the Mobile County Public Schools in 1999 as a special education teacher at Vigor High School. I also taught at Murphy and Bryant High Schools. I have worked as a school counselor at Chickasaw, Allentown, and Old Shell Road Schools. I am happy to be working with the students at McDavid-Jones and Taylor-White Elementary Schools this year.


I have lived most of my life in Mobile, Alabama. My wife and I have five children from middle school through college. I worked as a part-time psychology and education instructor at my alma mater, the University of Mobile, for 12 years. My wife is the gifted education specialist for four Mobile County elementary schools.

My favorite things to do are reading my Bible and spending time with my family.
