I am the proud husband of my beautiful wife, Blair, and we have two beautiful daughters. Throughout my career in education, I have sought to ensure that each student is equipped with the knowledge, skills, and strength and character needed to design the future. I am proud to serve in the role of Principal alongside an unbelievable leadership team, faculty, staff, student body, families, and community at GHS. As hobbies, I enjoy running, fishing, and cheering on my Clemson Tigers!
