About Me

I moved to Charlotte after graduating from Clemson University (Go Tigers!) in 2003.  I received my bachelor’s degree in Marketing with a minor in Management.  Once in Charlotte, I started out my career in the hospitality industry.  It was here where I developed the customer service skills necessary to satisfy all my clients’ needs.   After transitioning to a role in property management, my desire to pursue a career in real estate was an easy one.  I really enjoy working with people and going above and beyond to meet all of their needs and expectations.  I’m actively involved in the Charlotte community where I volunteer with The First Tee of Charlotte and Friendship Trays and am a member of the Charlotte Clemson Club.  In addition to real estate I enjoy playing golf, tennis, soccer, and pretty much anything else with a ball!  At home, my wife Leah and I enjoy our two Springer Spaniels Tillman and Riggs.  I look forward to all that my new career has to offer, working and serving the Charlotte real estate market.
