I want to ensure that our youth have access to programs and resources to prevent delinquency and ensure they have access to community-lead and other restorative programs should they make a mistake. My wife and I have 3 children. We enjoy game night, movies, running, riding bikes and serving the community. I have been in management for 25 years at UPS. I have been volunteer mentor and manager a mentoring program for the children of incarcerated parents for over 8 years. I am a volunteer instructor for a youth summer program for juniors and seniors interested in pursuing a MBA. I have a bachelors in business administration from Spalding University and a MBA from Bellarmine University. I was presented with a Joyce Skees Memorial Award for Youth Services by the YMCA of Louisville and Adult Achiever Award from the Black Achievers Program of the Chestnut Street YMCA.
