I was born in Knoxville and lived here until I graduated from the University of Tennessee in 1980. I returned in 2009 after living in five locations in the southeastern part of the United States and Sydney Australia.
I enjoy the Ice Bears hockey games and being involved in and around the team activities during hockey season.

My favorite location in Knoxville is Neyland Stadium and experiencing the autumn day atmosphere and festivities of an S.E.C. football game.
My favorite part of working at the KCAC is the excitement leading up to events and working with event staff to ensure a safe, secure and enjoyable time for all involved.
