About Me

I grew up in the Florence area and had a pretty typical childhood.  Like most kids in a rural area I loved exploring the woods and riding bikes (or anything with wheels) faster than they probably should go.  My dad was always a “fix it yourself” kind of guy so I learned early on that just because something is broken doesn’t mean it should be thrown out.  I spent plenty of time passing hand tools, holding a board for cutting or stacking the wood pile in the back yard.  Both of my parents were teachers and they taught me the value in doing something right the first time, so I rarely escaped my homework.  I went to Francis Marion University for a couple of years before deciding that programming was not for me and transferring to Florence Darlington Tech to complete their Cisco networking degree.  I’ve worked in several positions with different companies and find that the feeling of satisfaction that comes from helping people with their problems is what keeps me in the I.T. industry.  I worked in corporate I.T. for a few years but found that to be growing stale supporting the same old software day after day.  I chose HillSouth because I wanted to work with new and varied technologies, and the team here is adamant about getting the job done right the first time.

My Interests

Sports cars, engines in general, riding my motorcycle, target shooting and cooking.  I like any machine that goes fast.

Favorite Book

“A Brief History of Time” by Stephen Hawking, “Murder of the Century” by Paul Collins and the Sherlock Holmes stories by Arthur Conan Doyle.
