About

Profile PictureI am the Senior IT AV Systems Design Engineer in the department of Enterprise AV Services, part of the Division of Information Technology at UNG. That means I design, install, and maintain anything that is audio visual: projectors, sound systems, control systems, cameras, lighting, Polycom, Extron, Crestron, Yamaha, Dante, Hitachi, Sony, NEC, and any other techy-sounding thing.

I am also the deacon of technology at Christ Family Church in Dahlonega, GA. All in house technology (audio, video, lighting, etc.) is under my care.

I attended NGCSU (now UNG, where I work) for my undergraduate work in Music Performance. I’m also a graduate of SEBTS in Wake Forest, North Carolina, where I obtained a Master of Divinity with Biblical Counseling. I’m married to my awesome wife (Heather) and have an awesome family (first Jack, then Debbie, then Hannah, then Levi, and most recently Emmeline)!
