Key to Success: Recognizing my passions and purpose and working intentionally to achieve them both daily.


High School Superlative: Best Hair. It was the peak of the Bama Bangs era, and I had a flow that was ready to rush any fraternity.


Childhood Aspirations: I really wanted to be an engineer, but I didn’t excel in the right subjects. My second dream was to be a sports writer, which I was blessed to have accomplished. Unfortunately, the rumors about long hours, late nights, and little pay are all true.


First Job: My first job on the books was bagging groceries at Kroger, but I washed dishes at my grandmother’s restaurant at a very young age. She paid me in biscuits.


Best Advice: Playing baseball growing up, my mom would always tell me before I would bat to focus and breathe. Now that I’ve worked in several fast-paced, high stress environments, reminders to focus and breathe are really good things to keep in mind.


Biggest Influence Personally & Professionally: It’s undoubtedly my wife, Sarah. It’s sounds like a cliche, but she supports and believes in me more than anyone and pushes me daily to be a better person and strive for more.
