Quartermaster; Director of Buildings & Grounds

I like to think that my daily interactions with the cadets creates a positive atmosphere. While we are a military school with rules and regulations, our staff and faculty also like to have fun with the students. I would tell boys who are coming here that you are going to have good days and bad days. Keep the lines of communication open. 

I am high school graduate and completed two years of college. My military services was with the U.S. Army from 1982-2002. 

I spend my free time with my grandson, enjoying VMI and UVA sports. I also collect sports cards and memorabilia.
