I grew up in Georgia and moved to Birmingham originally to attend BSC, then wound my way back here after living in Japan and Atlanta.  I married Kathryn (Likis) Coltrane in 1997.  We have two children who attend Hoover City Schools. My hobbies include playing guitar, sporadic exercise and occasional travel.
