I was born in Jackson, Mississippi but grew up in the coastal city of Biloxi. At the age of 21 I joined the US Air Force and served two terms in the Transportation field in North Dakota, Germany, Italy, and Washington DC. It was during my time in Germany that I became a Christian when a coworker shared the Gospel message with me.
After my military service I joined the Biloxi Police Department and served as a patrol officer until late 2019 when I retired. During my career I was blessed with the opportunity to complete a bachelor degree in Christian theology, a master of arts in business management and leadership, and a master of divinity in evangelism and church planting.
Throughout my life God has blessed me with many great opportunities, challenges, and experiences that have helped me grow in my faith and dedicate myself to serving the church where needed most. I live in Goulds now and serve with Pastor Matt Lahey with the Kilbride Community Church plant.
