I was born and raised in the Atlanta area, and have lived here almost my entire life. I believe in knowing the rules. And breaking them on occasion. I am phenomenally-driven to learn new things and to put that knowledge to good use. My work ethic: harder and smarter. I’m all about seeing the big picture, developing strategy and acting on what matters. Whatever I’m committed to, I am committed to—faith, family, friends, career. I am passionate about helping others.
Sweet home, Atlanta.
Experience has taught me that it’s wise to maintain an even keel regardless of the situation. That there is always something to be thankful for, and that an attitude of gratitude will carry you a long way in life.
Speaking of gratitude, I am extraordinarily grateful for the opportunities and experiences I’ve had so far. It’s been my privilege to work with and learn from many amazing people in companies ranging from small local businesses to Fortune 500 companies.

My headphones are never far away—if they’re on, I’m in the groove. There’s almost certainly a longboard in my car. It doesn’t get ridden nearly enough. YouTube over cable any day. Avid reader, time permitting. The most fascinating images are found in pictureless-novels, especially the classics. Poor writing or editing drives me nuts. Times
1,000 a million if it’s mine. Somewhat of a healthy food enthusiast, but I do love good BBQ. Huge Atlanta Braves fan.
Here’s one more insight into who I am. I’ve done my fair share of personality profile tests. Some are weird, some are insightful. One that really resonated with me is the Myers-Briggs assessment. You provide honest answers to a long series of questions and are given one of 16 different personality ‘types.’ Despite having done this several times over the years, my type has remained the same. When you read the description of your personality type, it’s usually spot on. So much so that you’re likely to say, ‘that’s creepy.’ And it is. However it’s actually quite helpful in better understanding others—and yourself. Knowing what motivates people always leads to better relationships.
