My family is from Charleston and I graduated from the College of Charleston and USC Law School. I am married to Linda Hughes and have three adult children. Linda and I enjoy a variety of fitness and outdoor activities together. After serving as a Navy lawyer and then being in private practice, I became the CEO of the National Golf Course Owners Association in 1990 and left there in 2015 to join this staff. I enjoy working here because of the shared mission of spreading the good news of the gospel in our local community and beyond.
