I was born in Lancaster, South Carolina, and raised in the small community of Heath Springs where I attended Pleasant Hill Baptist Church and Andrew Jackson High School. I went on to attend York Technical College and Wingate University where I received a Bachelor of Arts in religious studies.
After my collegiate days, I worked in sales. I was fortunate enough to join the military in 1985 and retired in 2005 after spending a year in Iraq. In 2009, I joined Farm Bureau Insurance.
Currently, my wife and I enjoy traveling and spending time with our family, especially the grandkids. We also love tailgating at Clemson University football games.
The Bible says the greatest among you shall be a servant, and that is what I try to be to my family, friends, and clients.
