Tell us a little about yourself.
I was born and raised in Conway, Arkansas and attended the University of Arkansas in Fayetteville. GO HOGS! My career took me all over the country for several years. In 2015, I had the opportunity to move back to Central Arkansas. And it was in Conway that I was introduced to my wife. We are expecting our first baby in June 2021.
What does your job entail?
I am a Business Development Executive, and my job is to connect people and cultivate mutually beneficial partnerships.
Do you have a Motto or personal mantra that you live by?
The motto that I live by is “be where your feet are” – Tom Coughlin. I love the quote’s simplicity and how it is so applicable today.
What do you like to do most outside of work?
When I am not working, I enjoy being outside the house working on projects. I love grilling, horseback riding, hunting, fishing, skiing, traveling, and just spending time with my friends and family.
Do you have a favorite newspaper, newsletter, book, blog and/or podcast?
My favorite book is the Bible.
Secondly, I always recommend Wild at Heart by John Eldredge. It is a Christian-based book that discovers and recovers the secrets of a man’s soul.
