This is my twentieth year of teaching English in Georgetown County. I began in 1996, teaching at Howard before I moved to Waccamaw in 1998, and am entering my eigthteenth year here.  This year marks my fifth as the English Department Chair.  In addition to teaching, I am also the head coach of the Boys Varsity Soccer team where I am entering my ninetheenth year as coach this spring.  In the fall, I also coach the junior varsity volleyball team.


I live here in Pawleys Island with my wife, Jill, and our two children, son Jacob and daughter Skylar.  Jacob is twelve years old and entering the seventh grade at Waccamaw Middle School and Skylar is six years old, and she is entering the first grade at Waccamaw Elementary this fall.  My favorite thing to do is simply spending time with my family.  In my spare time (which there is very little of), I enjoy riding my bicycle, exercising in general, reading, watching movies, and watching my kids play their respective sports.
