About me

Burlington has been my home for 46 years after graduating from NC State University. I met my wife while working at the Burlington Recreation and Parks Department. We raised two daughters who attended Burlington public school systems and went on to complete master and doctoral degrees at NC State and UNC-CH. Our daughters and their husbands have blessed us with three inspiring grandsons.


Burlington citizens granted me the honor of serving them over the past four years as councilman after being elected in 2017. My goal was to strive to make the most appropriate decision which would benefit all residents of Burlington.


Since graduating college, my career of 46 years has focused on serving the community. My tenure with the City of Burlington began with the Recreation and Parks Department and continued for 40 years until retiring in 2015 as City Manager. My hope is each citizen experienced a better quality of life due to our efforts.


After retiring, I choose to continue to serve both Burlington and other communities by accepting a newly formed position with the NC League of Municipalities. My role is to consult with municipalities of varying populations with financial and operational needs.
