I kind of rolled into this
I’ve been with School Plant going on three years. I grew up most of my life in Virginia Beach. I was born in Fort Raleigh, Kansas and from there, we went to Baumholder, Germany. When I was entering preschool, we moved to Virginia Beach. I attended Kempsville Meadows then I moved away to West Point Military Academy when my father was stationed in the Army as a Colonel. I was there for two years. When he retired we came back home, lived down in Sandbridge, and I attended Princess Anne Middle and Kellam High School. I met my wife at Kellam High School. She is now a teacher in Chesapeake. We have a son who attends Red Mill Elementary.
I did a little bit of college at Campbell University and I owned my own business – Supercuts Hair Salon. I was an owner franchise for seven years and sold it. I also worked in the collision center at Beach Ford as a manager. I kind of rolled into this. My brother was in the construction business so, on the weekends, I would help him out and I finally got into the construction business. When I sold my business it gave me the opportunity to be a stay-at-home dad for two years, which is really cool. Not too many people can have that opportunity. I got to spend the first two years of my child’s life with him. Then, I knew a guy who worked with the school division and he suggested that I apply. I enjoy it. I love it and I’m still here.
