I am a lifelong Northport resident. I am a proud graduate of Tuscaloosa County High School, class of 1990. I graduated from Shelton State with an Associate degree in Machine Tool Technology. I worked in the trade and continued my education at the University of Alabama. I graduated with a degree in special education in 1999. I started my teaching career at Crestmont Elementary in 1999. I transferred to Echols when it opened in 2000 to teach and coach. I became the Assistant Principal of this great school in 2006. I replaced the wonderful Nancy Terry as principal when she retired in 2014.
I married Julie Thompson, the most beautiful girl in Northport, in 1995. We have two wonderful children Kylee and John Colby. We enjoy watching sports, hunting, fishing, and spending time with our church family.
