President-Elect

I am excited to rejoin the PTA board as President-Elect, having previously served as Treasurer and VP of Membership. I will also be chairing the retail promotions committee, so if you have any questions or need any help, please let me know. My wife, Carrie, and I have a 4th grader, Samantha, and we are really excited about the upcoming school year. As the son of a Marine, I grew up in several states and countries. I moved  to the Richmond area in 10th grade and then attended Randolph-Macon. I currently work in the financial services industry focusing on technology labor strategy.

My family feels very fortunate to be part of the Gator community, and we are excited to see the magic this year from these amazing Gators!
