I am a graduate of Barton High School and hold degrees in Political Science from Ouachita Baptist University and Baylor University. I serve as a History/Political Science Instructor at the Phillips Community College of the University of Arkansas. In addition, I also do some consulting work for the City of Helena-West Helena and the Phillips County Port Authority. I have one son named Collin, who is a student in the DeWitt Public Schools. In my spare time, I serve as the Secretary of the Helena-West Helena Booster Club and I have had the privilege of being the play-by-play voice of the Helena-West Helena Central Cougar football team since 2005.
