I was born and raised in Ohio, where I completed my bachelor’s degree. After living overseas for a couple of years, I moved to South Carolina to pursue my masters, married my beautiful wife, and settled in Lexington. Our family grew to four when our twins were born in 2016.

International Experience 

I’ve traveled to a number of countries, my favorite trips being to Germany, Spain, Italy, Haiti, and Mexico. After college, I had the opportunity to live and work in North Africa, specifically Morocco and Tunisia, for two years.

Columbia Favorites 

I love being outdoors, so some of my favorites include Lake Murray, Congaree National Park, Riverwalk, Riverbanks Zoo (especially with my family), and Harbison State Forrest. As a coffee lover, I enjoy any of the local coffee shops, including two close to my home in Lexington, The Haven and Second Wave.

Challenge the conventional. Create the exceptional. No Limits.
