Seven Years - Lookout Valley High School


I've been a Yellow Jacket since 1992! I grew up in Lookout Valley, attending Lookout Valley Elementary, Middle and High. I graduated 4th in my class in 2003, was voted Mr. Lookout Valley and "Best All-Around." 

I began working with computers as an occupation is 2005 with HCDE's IT department. From there, I learned web design, computer programming, server management, networking and began tinkering with video. in 2011, the opportunity to return home became available and I jumped on it. I have coached basketball for the past five seasons and this year I'll be helping start up LV's first ever soccer team. Should be interesting... 

I am married to my high school sweetheart, Sarah, and will be celebrating our 10th wedding anniversary this year. No, I'm not old, I just got married young! We have three amazing children - Luke (7), Abigail (5) and Logan (2), with #4 arriving in December.
