I have taught at Hilltop for six years. Prior to serving at Hilltop, I was a 2008 graduate of HCS. I went on to receive my Bachelor’s in Education from Southeastern College in 2012, where I met my wife, Hannah. Last November, we had our first child, Brinson. We are so thankful to be at Hilltop and are looking forward to what God has in store for us!
