Personal: I am a proud father of two daughters, one in elementary school and the other in high school.  My wife Stacie and I have lived in Woodstock for a little over 17 years and greatly enjoy living here.  We are both very involved in the community, particularly in the areas of education, non-profits, and small businesses.

Work: I work as a marketing/public relations consultant.  I have had the pleasure and privilege of working with lots of wonderful people through the years.  In the marketing area I handle Public Relations, Copy Writing, Social Media Strategies, Reputation Management, and numerous other areas.

Community: I am currently in my 8th year serving as a Board Member of the Carmel Elementary School PTA where I served as President from 2010-2012. I also served on the Woodstock Middle School & Carmel Elementary Local School Councils.  I have had the honor to serve on two local Blue Ribbon Committees regarding the Educational SPLOST renewal and Redistricting.

Media: In recent years I have been interviewed by The New York Times, USA Today, CNN, Associated Press, CBS Radio, Fox Business, Bankrate.com, PTO Today, The Cherokee Tribune, and Atlanta Journal-Constitution among others. I appeared on CNN as an on-air guest discussing social media.
