I became a Christian in: 1995 as a college student at the University of Georgia.

I am passionate about the Swamp because: When I graduated college I heard about this project to build a camp for children. I had no idea what it was all about at the time, but I volunteered to help build it. I worked out at camp hauling lumber, breaking up concrete frames on the dining hall, digging trenches and roofing cabins. Little did I know that I was helping build something that would make a tremendous impact on my children’s lives 20 years later. My oldest daughter, Elliot, studied the bible and was baptized out at the Swamp and she says that the Swamp was one of the main reasons that she found Jesus.

My wife and I have been working in the kitchen for about 10 years. It is one of the highlights of our year. We feel so full when we leave. It truly is a little slice of heaven!

My family: Julie and I met in the campus ministry and were married in 1999. We have lived in Athens ever since.
