I was born in Goldsboro and grew up in Pikeville, NC. I have been married to my beautiful wife Nicole since 1997. We have two boys, John and Jacob, who keep us on the go. I am very involved with the youth at my church in Kinston, from chaperoning trips to being a counselor at camps. Sports are a big passion of mine. I am a lifelong Wolfpack, Redskins and Reds fan. I joined the military after graduating high school, worked at DuPont, Minges Bottling and have been a substitute teacher in Lenoir County. I am excited to start in the real estate business with Tyre Realty Group.
