  • Appalachian State University BSBA 1981


Being a former football letterman at Appalachian Sate University, I have a keen interest in all sports, most specifically ASU football. I also participate in several charity Blue marlin tounaments each year on the NC coast. I believe that one must maintain physical sharpness and work on maintaining fitness at the local YMCA on a daily basis. My family and two dogs, Max and Jeezie, love to spend our weekends in the high country, outside of Blowing Rock during the weekends.
