I am a native of Columbus. I was born and educated here from elementary school through a Bachelor degree in Business at Columbus State University. I have owned and operated two very successful retail businesses here in Columbus; a hardware store and an outdoor power equipment store, for over thirty years.
My wife, Pattie, is also a native of Columbus and we have two children and five grandchildren. I have been very active in local youth sports and also in my church. My wife and I enjoy the beach and fishing. I really enjoy working with people and helping them find the right home without being a high-pressure salesman. I have been very successful in the real estate business and was recently elected as a state director for the Columbus Board of Realtors.
