I began working at Ridgedale in 2000, first as the groundskeeper and currently as the head of facilities. Before coming to Ridgedale, I was in sales in the Chattanooga area. I was born and raised in Ringgold, Georgia, graduated from Ringgold High School and attended Dalton State College.
I grew up in a Methodist church, but was not saved and baptized until the age of 25. A short time later, I felt that God was calling me to leave the world of sales. I started a lawn business, and it was through that business that I landed as the groundskeeper at Ridgedale. My family and I have been here ever since.
I love working with people and being involved in the day to day activities of the church. In my spare time, I love spending time with my family, working in my yard, and watching the Georgia Bulldogs or Atlanta Braves. I live in Ooltewah with my wife Sharone and four children – Jason, Hannah, Brett, and Tyler.
