I have been involved in archery, beginning in 1965 in North Carolina, while in the military and was a competitor for many years. I have been part owner in an archery shop and indoor range where I became interested in coaching archery and found that I liked it very much. I pursued that path which led to a Level V certification in 2010.  I have been a member of the GAA since 1996 and it has been a pleasure to be associated with archers from all over the state. I look forward to serving the GAA in any way I can and helping Georgia archers.

Bio:
I started NFAA competition in 1951 at age 10.  I’ve helped run different archery tournaments since 1963, and moved to Georgia in 1987.  I am a life member of the NFAA and the NAA.  In 1990 I started as a NAA Judge and I’ve been a National Judge since 1995.  I enjoy shooting all styles of today’s archery in competition, and I have a small archery museum in my basement of my home.
