HLA Team Member since 2011
Social Security & Disability, High School Grade Entry, and Duplicate Accounts

I joined the HomeLife team in November 2011.  My previous calling in life was in software engineering which moved me from the suburbs of Chicago to Jackson in 1991.  Then following the .com bubble bursting, I was working at various manual labor temp jobs in Jackson.  I was happy to come on board at HLA to help meet the needs of homeschooling families and students.


I hold a Bachelor of Science in Computer Science which was earned at the University of Illinois College of Engineering. This knowledge has come in handy at HLA for taking care of the technical support needs for families and staff.


I am a member of the Old Hickory Church of Christ and also enjoy singing with the Casey Jones Barbershop Chorus. I have also volunteered to be a mentor with tnAchieves as the partnering organization for the Tennessee Promise Scholarships.


My wife Phyllis, who is on HomeLife Academy’s Counseling Team, and I were married in 1987. We have two daughters, who are HomeLife Academy alumni and who both received degrees from Florida College (one of them was student number 39 with HLA way back when HLA first began).
