I graduated from Bell County High School in 1975, and attended Cumberland College (now University of the Cumberlands) for 2 years. I transferred to EKU where I took almost every class they had in police administration/corrections/juvenile justice. I graduated early from EKU in 1978, with 3 Associate Degrees, and 2 Bachelor’s Degrees. I attended Class 100 of the Bureau of Training by the Kentucky Law Enforcement Council. I served as a police officer at Daytona Beach, and later became the Deputy Chief Investigator of the Criminal Investigation Division in Daytona Shores P.D. I was certified as a sniper and in assault/entry on the S.W.A.T team. I later went to law school at Salmon P. Chase, just outside of Cincinnati. I came back to Middlesboro to practice law. I married Teresa Brogan in 1989, and we have been happily married for 21 years. Teresa runs my office and most of our other ventures, including our land development, Vista Venado. We own numerous rental properties, several of which are downtown Middlesboro. We have been active in “rescuing” and restoring old buildings in the Downtown area since the tornado of 1988. I am the Chairman of the Economic Development Committee for Discover Downtown Middlesboro, a 501(c)(3) corporation that promotes economic expansion for Downtown Middlesboro. I love and support the Cumberland Gap National Historical Park, and am proud to currently serve as Chairman of the Board of the Friends Group. I grew up flying with my Dad, and was honored to serve several terms on the Middlesboro Bell County Airport Board, and as their past Chairman. I am currently the Airport Board Attorney. We are blessed to be members of the First Baptist Church of Middlesboro.
