I have been a Social Studies teacher since 2001. I have taught High School and Middle School U.S. History and U.S. Government courses. I am also honored to serve in the Tennessee General Assembly as the 43rd District State Representative. I am married to wife Laura and have three sons, Jackson, Brooks and Wilson. I grew up on a dairy farm in the Midway community in Rock Island. I enjoy raising cattle, coaching softball at Midway, reading, and traveling.
