I grew up in the Atlanta area and attended Clemson University.  At Clemson, I played basketball and, more importantly, met my future wife Whitney.  I began my first career as a professional basketball player in 1999 in Ft. Wayne, IN and continued to play basketball for 10 years—most of those years in Europe.  Whitney and I got married in 2001 and now have three very active sons--Ryan, Adam and Logan.  We are very involved in the East Cobb community and can usually be found at a youth sports activity or at Mt. Bethel United Methodist Church.

I began my second career by joining Northwestern Mutual in December of 2009 and I have thoroughly enjoyed helping families and businesses reach their financial security goals and dreams.
