Welcome! If you enjoy working with your hands, this may be the field for you. Did you know that the HVAC field entails all of the major building trades? What are the Building Trades you ask? Plumbing, Electrical, Carpentry, Masonry, and of course, Heating and Air Conditioning. Did you ever think you could learn so much in one program. I know it is hard to believe that you can do all these things, but you can. If this interest you, please contact me @ (434)797-8464 or

Just to give you a little brief history about me, I am an alumni of Danville Community College. I worked in the field for 15 years in just about every aspect of the industry from installation, servicing, sales, and running a HVAC company. I enjoy this field and my main purpose here is to ensure each student succeeds and advances in the HVAC field. I am involved with the students on campus and enjoy the activities we participate in together. I'm an advisor for the Golf team, National Technical Honor Society, and serve on the state committee for the Student Leadership Conference. DCC has a lot to offer their students with club activities and events.


My hobbies include raising cattle and farming, playing golf, motorcycle riding, staying current with the HVAC field, and most importantly, spending quality time with my two kids.
