Biography

Married for 24 years, with two children, daughter (18), son (14). I joined the Truett McConnell family in August 2011. I am Associate Vice President of Special Projects, IT and Business Support at Truett McConnell University. I am also Division Chair of World Missions and Christian Studies and Associate Professor of History and Christian Studies. In addition, I serve the Lord as a missionary in the business world, as an accounting consultant for a family conglomerate in Fort Worth, TX. In case you are wondering, my last name is pronounced: “graph-uh-knee-no.” I came to faith in Christ at the age of 20. The Lord has sought me to serve Him in both business and ministry for over 25 years. I am also a Cajun who can cook a mean pot of Chicken and Sausage Gumbo! GEAUX TIGERS!
