"Money makes a wonderful servant and a terrible master.”
Quotes like these were the regular subject of our dinner table discussions growing up. My dad spent his career in Finance and my mom was an Accountant; they taught my sister and me to manage money lest it manage us.
I spent my childhood at the foot of the Colorado mountains, but went to Texas for college. I earned a Bachelor’s degree in Business with a concentration in Human Resources from Trinity University in San Antonio, Texas. I then received a full scholarship to the University of Texas at Austin where I earned a Masters in Business Administration with an Information Systems concentration. Lynn and I met and married as graduate school sweethearts.
I spent ten years traveling the world with Exxon, designing and implementing accounting and logistics software. By that point we had kids and sensed it was time for a radical life change. I left Exxon and became the Administrative Pastor of a small church in Miami, Florida. Over the next dozen years, we were privileged to see ministry grow from a few families to several thousand across multiple locations. God used our administrative gifts and love for people to help build a healthy Christian community in a difficult environment. In 2013, with two kids off to college and our youngest heading to middle school, we decided it was again time for a radical change away from the big city. We moved to Davidson, where our family has been greatly blessed to find a fit at Lake Norman Christian School. Our daughter Carissa is in tenth grade and my wife Lynn serves as the College and Career Counselor.
I spent my first two wonderful years at LKNC teaching technology and Bible, and am excited to accept the role of Business Manager as the school grows. We have a great team of parents, students, teachers, and administrators in place and I am confident that the best is yet to come.
When I am not at the school, I am decidedly "low tech.” I enjoy vintage Volkswagens, Vespa scooters, riding my mountain bike, and yelling at Davidson basketball games with Lynn.
