I was born in Manchester, Georgia, then moved to the Carolinas and Florida before settling in Concord, North Carolina. I graduated from Clemson University in 1995 with a BS in Business Management. Clemson is a family tradition as my brother, father, and both grandfathers graduated from Clemson.
After graduating from college, I started in the waterworks distribution industry in 1996. A friend of our family had a son who was a manager in Charlotte, NC with Davis Meter & Supply. He hired me into the business and as they say the rest is history. My first job in waterworks was working in a warehouse, loading and unloading trucks.
My wife, Kim, and I have two daughters, Sara and Ellie. You will hear me talk occasionally that my wife and I are swim parents, as both kids swim competitively year-round.
Our family enjoys the many swim meets we attend, vacationing at any beach, and traveling to the mountains of North Carolina. I enjoy cycling, snow skiing, and photography.
