I was born in Spartanburg, SC but consider my home in the Foothills of NC, where I attended Elementary School through High School in Forest City, NC. I attended college at NC State University, where I earned a BA Degree in Business Management. I met my wife, Connie, at NCSU and we were married in 1988. We have three children, two of which are currently attending college, one at UNCW and the other at Kenyon College in Ohio. I briefly worked in retail management and then in sales before finding my way into the Paving & Paving Maintenance business about 18 years ago. I have been with Pavement Exchange Group since 2014 working as a Project Manager. Since coming on board with Pavement Exchange, I have continued to hone my skill and have obtained an ADA Coordinator Certification.
