I am very excited to be teaching Physical Education at Ola Middle School and coaching at Ola High School. My coaching responsibilities include basketball and baseball, in addition to serving as the Strength and Conditioning Coordinator. Before I came to Ola, I taught at the National Personal Training Institute and worked part-time at Georgia State University. I have been a personal trainer for the past 5 years, and a Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist for 2 years. This year has been great for me and my family. My wife and I had our first child, Aidin, in March of 2006.When I am not coaching or spending time with my family, I enjoy weight-lifting, playing softball, and watching college football.
