My life outside of work

My family includes…

my wife, Stephanie, my son Ryker and our three amazing doggos that I love dearly.

In my free time, you can find me…

camping, boating, biking, grilling, and spending time with friends new, and old.

I’m passionate about…

living! I am on the lookout for new and exciting adventures daily!

My greatest blessing is…

my family, friends, and the struggles that I overcome daily.

My personal motto is…

your mindset matters.... If you think you can't, you are right.

My hidden talent is…

cooking, grilling and smoking meats, and letting someone else clean up the mess :)


I love my family and doggo's!! They all keep me on my toes and having a young son keeps me young at heart and spirit daily. I had a child a bit later in life but cherish the experience and would never change a thing about my life.

Growing up in Middle Tennesse I never dreamed of relocating with my career several times in 25 years. I am happy to be back home for the past 15 years.

I am a huge fan of the Wings of Freedom Fish Fry in Smyrna. These events always highlight the community giving and coming together. There are multiple memories each year that are shared with in excess of 2500 folks.
