I am a graduate in Industrial Engineering from Clemson University in 1992, but initially decided to pursue my dream in music since the job market was slow at that time. By 1998, after 7 years in the music industry, 5 years of marriage, a three year old and one on the way, I was ready to settle down. In March of that year I started my career in Real Estate. Since my mother (RE/MAX agent) has been a Realtor since 1980 in Greenwood, SC, the town I grew up in, I was familiar with the industry and thought it would be a good way to really spread my wings in a career that would give me flexibility and not move my family around chasing the next engineering promotion. I decided to join RE/MAX from the beginning. I ha...ve never regretted the decision. I have been the top individual agent in my office for many years, reaching RE/MAX international Hall of Fame status by 2004. I won the regional "hustle" award in 2002, and have been either a member of the Platinum or 100% clubs every full year I have been selling real estate.
My personal hobbies include mostly fitness oriented goals and keeping up with my three children's sports schedules, though I still occasionally play golf if the opportunity gives me a good "excuse." I have trained and competed in triathlons, and other endurance events, but I mostly work with resistance training and lighter cardio now to maintain a healthy lifestyle.
I have a wonderful wife, Amy, who works full time as a mom, volunteers in our children's schools and also works part-time as a medical social worker in the pediatric oncology group at Greenville Health System. I have been married since 1993, have three wonderful kids that are growing up all too fast.
While maintaining my fitness goals, and working full time for my clients, I am also very active with the leadership in my Presbyterian church and the local and state real estate board of directors and Multiple Listing Service committees. One of my goals has always been to give back generously a portion of what I have been so blessed to receive and I do that through church and various other local charities that are important in the life of our community. Since I am and have always been self-employed, I maintain a level of work ethic that is obviously important to the well being of my family's lifestyle.
