I was born and raised in Roanoke, Virginia along the Appalachian Trail. I like hiking and the outdoors.
I enjoy sports and have organized and played with adult recreational league softball and basketball teams. I played high school baseball and earned 2nd team All District honors.
I twice participated in the Brethren Church’s National Youth Conference in Fort Collins, Colorado.
I appreciate the value of a strong work ethic. Working on the grounds crew for a local golf course, I was responsible to be on the course as early as 5 am. I enjoyed the process of earning my Eagle Scout including completing my service project, building a fire circle with a drainage system for a regional church camp.
I share my home with an old Redbone hound.
I am an ardent fan of the St. Louis Cardinals and Boston Celtics.
