Describe your job: To help God’s children walk the straight and narrow path that he has provided and maintain His building that we call Williamstown Christian Church…..and all other duties not mentioned.

Home Town: Williamstown, Ky.

Describe your family: Met my best friend (my spouse Martha) at Kentucky Christian (and she’s a UNC fan as well)-and we have had a unbelievable journey thus far. We have 2 children, Kyle and Abby, and we live a hectic, non-stop life in which we often find ourselves in a gymnasium or golf course supporting them- we send a lot of time together. And we have Piper, our German Shepherd.


Beach or mountains: Beach – I’m not a cold weather fan (other than the season means basketball season), typically when I think of the beach I’m thinking warm weather.

Early Bird or Night Owl? Both – can do either – sleeps overrated. My Grandfather always said people die in bed.

Sports or arts? Sports… there any other channel on television than ESPN?

Creative or administrative? I think both

Italian Food or Mexican Food? Would lean toward Italian – but love most foods

Coffee or Tea? Coffee in the morning – Tea in the evening – best of both worlds

Ice Cream or Froyo? Ice Cream


Most embarrassing moment: Mind is blank…..

One place you would like to visit: Baseball Hall of Fame or Augusta National

One thing about the staff people don’t realize: The love for what they do!

The best movie of all time is clearly: Star Wars – nuff said!

If you had to do one other job in a field outside of your own, what would it be: Caddie on the tour

Everyone should read: I read a lot of coaching books – love “Lead for God sake” by Todd Gongwer and “Toughness” by Jay Bilas
