Born in ’80 and raised in Charleston, South Carolina where I attended Northside Christian School. In ’97 the Lord called my father to be the pastor of a church in Blaine where I completed high school through WCC.
Even before the age of 10, I remember having a way with and love for mechanical things; I love to learn how things work and instinctively knew at times. At 13 I was rebuilding the carburetor to my first car and at 16 rebuilding a junk yard engine. After meeting my wife and going through a period of growing up, I felt called to work professionally in the automotive industry. In 2004 I earned an AD in Automotive Technology at Universal Technical Institute. After my daughter was born in 2010, I started stepping away from automotive as my focus. Later, using my skills in manufacturing and production, I found a clear need for teachers. I realized the Lord’s calling to mentor young people in work ethic and a passion for helping people with their God-given gifts. Every day I pray for Him to guide me through continued improvement, knowing that I don’t know the best way. My teaching styles of CAD, Small Gas Engines and Welding classes will be the same; theory application with passion, guidance with love and understand through Jesus Christ.
My wife Jaime, daughter Anika and I attend Blaine Christian Fellowship. If we’re not at church, work or our minimalist home; we are likely enjoying biking, hiking, kayaking and/or camping with our dog Freya.
1 Corinthians 13:13 – And now these three remain: faith, hope, and love. But the greatest of these is love.View All Staff
