Short_2019_wideI have lived in the Smyrna community for over 60 years. My wife Patty (formally Patty Floyd) and I have three sons; Josh, Tyler and Trenton. We have two daughters- in-law, Jamie and Shelby and two granddaughters Sophie and Makenzie. I graduated from Smyrna High School in 1973, Belmont College, now Belmont University, in 1978 with a Bachelor of Science Degree.  I have a Masters Degree from Middle Tennessee State University.  In March of 2018 I retired after 40 years from Bridgestone.  During that time I worked at the LaVergne and Warren County Plants the first 20 years and the last 20 years at the North American Headquarters in Nashville.  For most of those 40 years I worked in the Health and Safety field.  I am a Board of Certified Safety Professional (CSP).

I served on the Planning Commission, Historic Zoning Commission and Sister City Committee in Smyrna.  I have volunteered as an assistant coach in the Smyrna Jr Basketball League.  I am a lifelong member of Powell’s Chapel Baptist Church and have served as a Deacon there since 2001.   I enjoy spending time with Patty, traveling, working around the house, going for walks and attending activities around Smyrna.
