I was born and raised in Charleston, SC on James Island. I have been a Camp Member since August 1999. I am a National, Division, and Camp Life Member.
I am on my 3rd term as the Camp’s 2nd Lt. Commander. I have been the Camp Highway Clean Up Chairman since the early 2000s, and the Camp Graves and Guardian Chairman since 2019.
I was awarded the Camp Compatriot of the Year Award for 2011 and 2019, the Camp White Star Award in 2012. I was also awarded the SCV Superior Achievement Award in 2008 and 2009 and the SCV Meritorious Service Medal in 2019.
I have either reenacted in or helped with the Confederate Heritage Trust’s Ghost walk at Magnolia Cemetery for many years.
I helped exhume the remains of the soldiers and sailors at Johnson Hagood Stadium and the reinternment at Magnolia Cemetery.
I am a Camp Guardian having located and marked the graves of two of my Confederate ancestors and am currently working on another ancestor buried in Florida.
I have worked with Camp 4 on our Division and National Reunions, Camp Bike Rides, highway and cemetery cleanups, and with the funeral and burial of the last Hunley crew and volunteered at the Hunley Lab.
I presently reside in Ravenel, SC with my wife Penny, and two dogs, Gully and Otis, and over a dozen box turtles.
