“I am originally from Montgomery, Alabama and definitely a genuine southerner. I grew up a baseball junkie and love supporting the Braves, now just down the street from our Cobb County home. I also stay very involved with my beloved Alma Mater – Auburn University and will always be a Tiger! I am a sucker for a DIY project and getting outdoors or spending time with my wife and two daughters. I truly enjoy being a Transportation Professional in Metro Atlanta where there is always a new traffic challenge.”
