As the news and communications director, I direct the news and communications operation of the university which involves strategic planning and vision to promote the university in alignment with its strategic plan. I cultivate, establish and maintain relationships with local, state and national media contacts. I promote a positive image, both in-house and externally through regular communication with executive administrators, faculty, staff and students to generate news stories distributed to external and internal outlets. My beautiful wife Amy and I, along with two rambunctious teenagers — Cason (13) and Savannah (14) — reside just off No. 12 at Southern Hills Golf Course. We all enjoy playing golf and basketball and traveling. My oldest son Jacob and his wife Bree and son Avenn are in Maryland where he serves in the U.S. Navy. I'm an avid Tennessee Vols, St. Louis Cardinals and Tennessee Titans fan. Of course I root for the Golden Eagles, too!
