"I am the oldest of two sons, born in Gallipolis, Ohio and graduated from Wayne High School in Dayton, Ohio and then Columbus State with an Associate's Degree in Business Management. I began working in the auto industry in 1993, and today I am the Marketing Director for Germain Motor Company. I spend time traveling between our five markets in Ohio, Florida and Michigan. I continue to serve on multiple dealer and automotive advisory boards, internet marketing panel discussions, and various speaking engagements. In between those visits, I spend a lot of time on the bicycle, thanks to Pastor John's influence a few years ago! I have completed several Peletonia 100+ mile rides and have raised over $50,000 for that cause. My wife, Melissa, and I have lived in Pataskala since 2002 with our two children, Kaitlyn and Noah. I have taught middle and high school Grow Groups, traveled on World Changers missions trips, and coached UPWARD basketball in years past. My life passage is 1 Thessalonians 5: 16-18 (NIV), 'Rejoice always, pray continually, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God's will for you in Christ Jesus.'"
