I attended Oral Roberts University after I graduated from high school. At ORU, I grew deeper in my faith and had the opportunity participated in many different kinds of ministries. I was apart one of the school’s music ministries which still exists till this day. I was a musician and an audio technician. I even had the opportunity to tour a couple of times in various parts of the country. A few years following school, I joined the US Navy and was stationed overseas in Sasebo Japan. I have traveled to every continent except South America and Antarctica. I am married with four daughters and we are currently living in King George, VA. I currently work for EPA as a telecommunications specialist and specifically in the area of audio-visual. I have previously worked for the Department of Defense, USAID, AmeriCorps and the Smithsonian African American Museum. I am still working on finishing out my military career through the reserves.
I also perform audio-visual installations for churches and schools as my personal side business. I play the drums (my first drum lesson was at TCA in the second grade), and I am the ministry lead for the audio and video department at my church.
I would have love for all of my daughters to have attended TCA. I wish there was a second branch of the school down here in my area of Virginia. Maybe that is something that can be suggested or looked into. My county of King George is not very well known but we are right next to the city of Fredericksburg which is located halfway between Washington DC and Richmond, VA . In fact, my county has an old school building that is no longer occupied. It used to be the middle school before they moved into the old high school building after the new high school was built.
As an alumni, I am offering my services as an audio-visual consultant if the school has a need. I also have a supplier for audio-visual equipment which allows me to discount the sale of equipment to my customers. I can be reached by email or by phone at 540-376-4463.
In closing, I must say I have so many fond memories from my time at TCA, even though I only attended in elementary school (Darby & Media). I was telling my wife and one of my daughters about my time there. Looking back, I wish I had stayed and finished all the way through high school. I just love what the school is offering now. If I lived closer, I would love to participate in what the school is doing now.
