About.

ENTREPRENEURIAL IN SPIRIT.

I believe that leaders are only as strong as the team they surround themselves with, and I would like to add strength to yours.

In 1991 I began cutting grass for neighbors with a TUFFCUT 24″ self propelled mower that I helped my father assemble. When I turned 16 I was gifted a new mower, trailer, trimmer, and backpack blower as a result of my hard work. The Lawn and Landscape industry has continuously provided for me when there has ever been a question about direction. I have a passion for the professionals, equipment, and the customers, as well as the gratification that comes at the end of a project.

I have collected a variety of “arrows in my quiver” throughout my professional career, all of which I use on a regular basis. After finishing my Bachelors of Science in Business at Belmont University in Nashville, I was employed in the healthcare industry managing electronic record systems. I have worked in logistics as a dock loader, and as an OTR Driver. I have spent time managing route sales, worked with an appraisal company, and spent time in the Marine Corps.

The combination of all the various professional fields and my dedication to the companies I have worked for have given me a unique and valuable perspective on sales, management, branding, marketing, and IT. Contact me today to see if I am a good fit to add value to your team.
