I love people and I love to teach! What better way to spend my retirement days than teaching people how to save lives.

In October, 2014 I retired from the Federal Prison where I provided engineering support.  I also served as the CPR Program Coordinator there for 20 years. Prior to my law enforcement career, I designed homes at a Memphis architectural design company. I’m a U.S. Army veteran, father of four and grandfather to four more.  I have a beautiful wife. For 26 years I served in an international boys’ mentoring ministry and completed that service as their Tennessee State Director.

I’ve been an instructor and instructor trainer in the military, for non-profits, in government and in various roles in the community all of my life. Since starting CORPRO CPR, I have found that my wide range of life experiences is a huge asset in providing a personalized training experience for my clients. Whether it’s a construction company, a childcare center, a medical clinic or a professional office, I can relate to them.

I help companies and individuals save lives. This is done by offering the American Heart Association (AHA) and the Occupational Safety and Health Administration’s (OSHA) curriculum.

The Lord has blessed me to be doing what I’m passionate about and to be saving lives while doing it.
