Working with youth has been something I have been doing for a very long time. From raising two daughters to coaching numerous sports teams, to taking care of AIDS and high risk babies to founding a high school teen mentoring group, I have always had a passion for helping develop young folks.
I have been involved at St. Mark since 2000 and served in many roles to include: Usher, St. Mark Representative on African American Outreach, PACEM Overnight Volunteer, Choir, Sunday School Music, Asst. Pancake flipper, Stewardship/ Discipleship Team, Assisting Minister, Preschool Committee, Worship and Music Committee, Youth Advisor, IT Support, Reader, Parking Lot Attendant, Children’s Moment, and Mission Council.
I am a 20 year retired Air Force Veteran and had the honor of providing Secure Airborne Communications Support for the President, Vice President, Secretary of State and Secretary of Defense and other dignitaries. Currently, I am the Director of Technology for the Hospice of the Piedmont and an Executive Leadership Coach with MSBCoach. I have a Bachelors of Science degree in Management from the University of Maryland and an Associates of Science Degree in Electronic Systems from the Community College of the Air Force.
My lovely wife Patty and I have been together for more than 38 years (married for 30). Our daughters Emily and Natalie grew up at St Mark. My hobbies include exploring Virginia’s wine trail with Patty, exercising, singing, playing the guitar and golfing.
