Recent Activity  -


I am currently the Social Studies Supervisor for Lafayette Parish School System. I am currently raising 4 children along with my wife, Melanie. My career goals are to continue building my knowledge within my field and to become a vital member of the leadership community. I would also like to run for political office one day to push for more rights for veterans and our children.
