He was a proud graduate of Georgia Southern University and served as Director of Public Relations & Promotions at Kiawah Island Resort, Director of Marketing at Patriots Point Development Authority, Program Director at Charleston Convention & Visitors Bureau, and Public Relations Director at Wild Dunes Resort all before moving to Newnan, GA to assume the role of “Mr. Mom” for his two sons.

He enjoyed travel and shared his expertise in the travel industry by authoring travel blogs for Turks and Caicos up until the time of an acquired brain injury in 2012.
