I am a life-long resident of Newton County. I grew up on a dirt road in District 1 and now live on another dirt road in that same district. My wife Leslie and I have been married 22 years. My wife teaches second grade at Mansfield Elementary School. My daughter Coley is a senior at Eastside High School and my son Tristan is a sophomore.
I am a 1982 graduate of Newton County Comprehensive High School and a 1984 graduate of Control Data Institute — computer technology. I hold a BS in business management and an MBA from the University of Phoenix.
I am a 32-year employee of AT&T. I have served on the Newton County Board of Elections and as Vice President of the executive board at Project Renewal, a domestic violence shelter serving Newton, Rockdale and Walton counties. I was elected to the Newton County Board of Education in 2014. My family and I attend Eastridge Community Church.
