I have been married to my wife Gaynel for 27 years and we have 3 children.
I have worked since starting my first job at age 11 delivering newspapers. I worked throughout high school in the school cafeteria and earned my way through college pumping gas at the local Gulf station.
I am involved in numerous charitable and community programs but the two I enjoy most are coaching CYO basketball, which I have done for almost twenty years and I recently founded a social justice scholarship program that engages eighth grade students with local service organizations and projects to increase awareness about justice in our society.
