This will be my 2nd year at New Ellenton STEAM Magnet School. I will be the Physical Education teacher for grades 6-8th.  I am also excited to serve as the Head Coach for the Bullpups Football team this school year! Prior to NEMS, I taught for 5 years at Leavelle McCampbell Middle School.  While at Leavelle McCampbell, I served as the Athletic Director for all 5 years. I served as an assistant coach on the Boys Football team from 2016-2019.  I also coached the Boys Basketball team from 2017-2020 with an overall record of 35-10 and back to back championships in 2018 and 2019.  I live in Aiken with my wife Ashlyn. We have been married for six years now and have a son named Mason who turned 3 years old this past July. In my spare time, I enjoy being around family and friends. I love watching football and basketball. Coaching is my passion and I am blessed to have a job where I can influence kid's lives. I am excited about this new year and what it has in store for everyone!
