I enjoy combining my passion for Jesus with my love for adventure in the outdoors.  Some of my favorite outdoor activities include wakeboarding (obviously!), fishing, camping, and kiteboarding. I am also an extreme sports enthusiast with over 500 skydives including wingsuit jumps, and 1 BASE jump off the New River Gorge Bridge in West Virginia.

I got my first wakeboard with the old school sandal bindings when I was 14 years old and learned how to wakeboard behind a 1982 GlassMaster with a 115hp Johnson outboard motor. Despite begging my dad for a wakeboarding boat (and my dad constantly saying NO), I was fortunate enough to have some friends with good wakeboarding boats. I never considered competing until last year when my wife said, you should enter a tournament and see how you do. So I entered two INT stops and ended up winning the highest division at both stops. 

I currently teach Outdoor Education at Meadow Glen Middle School.  I have a Master's Degree in physical education and I am also a SCDNR boater education instructor and American Heart Association CPR/First Aid instructor. Currently, I am pursuing my doctorate at University of South Carolina in Curriculum and Instruction. I attend Mt. Horeb UMC in Lexington and enjoy spending time with my wife, Caroline, who is a dentist at Palmetto Dental Associates in Lexington, and my three sons, Levi, Micah, and Canaan.
