I have been in higher education since 2012 in both recruitment and career services. Prior to that I worked in financial services. I’m currently pursuing my Doctor of Executive Leadership through UC and my research interests include the impact of forgiveness on leadership and authentic leadership. As a native West Virginian, I am passionate about education and economic development in our state.

I live in Wayne, WV with my wife Kim, a third grade teacher. We have a small hobby farm where we raise chickens and a vegetable garden. We have three dogs (Jasmine, Ariel, and Belle) and a cat (Aladdin). We are members of Laurel Freewill Baptist Church in Wayne.
