I am a life long resident of Powell County, graduated from PCHS in 1970 and graduated from Berea College in 1975 with a BS in Industrial Arts. I taught Carpentry and Industrial Technology at PCHS and retired in 2003. I have been a Real Estate Broker since 1978 (as has Josie), and an Auctioneer since 1979. My office opened in 2005 in the same location as Elkins Insurance LLC. Josie has ran that since 1976 and I got my Insurance Agent’s license in 2003 and began helping her. I am active in community affairs and have served in the Kiwanis for several years and am currently President. I established the Track Program at PCHS and coached for 19 years. I enjoy woodworking and carving, gardening and photography. I designed and built our home, a geodesic dome, in 1993. We have 2 children, Kaelan 29, and Eli 26.
