I was born in Arkansas, grew up and went to high school and college in Alabama, and I now reside in Spartanburg, SC. My wife and I have called the Upstate of South Carolina home since 2004 and we love it here! In our spare time we own and run a creative letterpress printing business that creates high-end, eco-friendly stationery, greeting cards, business cards and event invitations.
I married my college sweetheart in 1998 and we both began our teaching careers in Georgia in 2001. I am a semi-professional web designer and love graphic design and typography. You’ll see hints of this love for design in our printing business and in teaching presentations I make here at SC Whitmore School.
I have a BS in Athletic Training from Troy University and a MS in Biology from the University of Alabama in Huntsville. I started my professional career as a Certified Athletic Trainer working in physical therapy and strength and conditioning before going back to graduate school to become a science teacher. I love human biology and enjoy teaching Anatomy & Physiology and other health and fitness related courses.
