I married Marie in July, 2009. She is a wonderful blessing in my life! I completed my M.Ed. in Mathematics Education at UGA in 2008.  I began work on an Ed.D. at Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary in the Fall of 2009. In the Summer of 2010, I transitioned back to the University of Georgia as an assistantship opportunity opened once again. I am currently pursuing a Ph.D. in Mathematics Education.
