I grew up in Limestone County where I attended West Limestone High School. Growing up on a farm I always tried help my parents and grandfather, and I learned at a young age that through hard work anything is possible. I am blessed to be married, and my wife and I have our own small operation now and we love it. Around our farm you would expect to see cows, goats, chickens, and ducks.

I learned to weld in high school AG class and continued doing so around the farm. It would be safe to assume that my time welding on farm equipment directed my career path.

I always wish to instill with my students the same values that I learned growing up, because I know that through hard work, dedication, and perseverance one can achieve anything they set their mind to.
Career and Technical Courses
Associates in Applied Sciences: Welding Technology Calhoun Community College
I began my career in a local fabrication shop while I attended Calhoun. If you look around at many of the prominent businesses in the Huntsville and Madison area, chances are that some of the ornamental ironwork that you would see was built by me.

I changed careers after a short time and began working for a Government Defense contractor. I assembled and welded parts primarily for the Patriot Missile System.

During my time working for the contractor, I discovered my love for teaching. I am thankful to be a part of the Calhoun Community College Welding Department as an Adjunct Instructor for over one year now. I would love to see students graduate and continue to Calhoun where they can still have me as an instructor!
