I grew up in Nashville, attending Eakin Elementary, Caldwell Middle, and Hillsboro High Schools.
In my life, I have been a stepchild and a stepfather; I endured a divorce, but am now married again with children of my own.
While at Hillsboro, I received the Ed Hessey award (ask me). After spending five great years in college during the Payton Manning years, I graduated from U.T. (Knoxville) in 1997, and went to work in Nashville and Charleston, South Carolina for the U.S. trucking division of one of the world’s largest international shipping companies.
After three years in the real world, I went back to school, and received my law degree in 2003 from the University of South Carolina. While there I clerked for a local law firm, and worked on the student staff of the ABA Real Property, Probate, and Trust Journal. I was on the Dean's List and found time to enjoy USC. After graduation, I spent time working in a law firm and as an Assistant Public Defender before settling into my private, solo, practice in 2007. My primary focus is family and domestic law, though I continue to defend criminal cases at all levels. I am currently admitted to practice in South Carolina and Tennessee.
