Hi, my name is Preston. I am currently enrolled at Richard Bland college to get my associates degree before I move on to get my doctorate in World History and Military History. I enjoy learning fun facts about people and I love a good intellectual conversation. I love classic cars, video games, and roller coasters. Currently I live in Dinwiddie, Virginia and I am currently working for my dad on a horse but also want to branch out my options for becoming a future educator of the higher level. I really love 20th century history as I personally feel that it was the most defining time in human history for all people with the many developments in technology as well as culture. I try and apply history to all aspects in my life, be it learning from my mistakes or simply using prior knowledge to make a decision. Other than that, I am a pretty simple guy and I am very easy to get along with.

A neat fact about me is that I went to Appomattox Regional Governors School for the Arts and Technology. I attended there for my ability with the piano and graduated in June of 2017 with an advanced diploma. That is really all there is to say about me and I hope that you choose me to help you gain insight into our past. :)

CUTCO

For a few months I was a sales rep for CUTCO. If you don't know, they are a kitchen knife company. Anyways, the job was fun and I enjoyed it, but the area I live in didn't have suffient demand for it to be profitable for me to keep working for them, so I quit.
