I was raised in South Mississippi with my 5 siblings. I worked with my father, who was a homebuilder, for a few years while I was in college. After graduating from the University of Southern Mississippi with a B.A. in Marketing, I decided to move out west as soon as I could.
I moved to Colorado Springs in 2004 and began working as a summer youth counselor for Summit Ministries for a couple of years. I continued working at Summit Ministries by helping to maintain and remodel several of Summit's historical facilities. I continued working in the construction industry, gaining valuable experience in areas such as underground utilities, foundations, custom home building, custom decks, sunrooms, outdoor kitchens with living areas and fire pits, landscapes, and construction project management.
I have over 12 years combined experience in the construction trades, design, sales, and project management. I also met my wonderful wife here in Colorado when she also moved here from South Mississippi. I enjoy spending time developing my relationship with the Lord. I also enjoy exploring the outdoors with my wife and savoring moments with our son.
