A Fresh Look With Experience Serving
Years ago I returned to Greenville, South Carolina this time for good. I'd been away, off and on since the age of seven. During my several moves with family, I spent time learning and developing as a Soldier, deploying to Afghanistan, touring South Korea, and then returned to become a local business owner. Here, I bring myself, family and friends to live, home, in the great state of South Carolina.
I have several memories growing up in Greenville. I attended Hughes Academy and South Side High School in the area before departing for North Carolina. I stayed active, participating with the Urban League step team, orchestra group, ROTC and Speech & Debate. All of which I feel groomed me to become the man I would journey on to become. The Greenville I left as a young man is nothing like the Greenville I returned to, and is certainly nothing like the Greenville we enjoy today.
District 19 has become a premier place to live, work and raise a family! Honored to live in a community that has taken such strides in becoming a key destination for thousands. There are members within our communities I am proud to have watched and received mentorship from that have been instrumental in the growth and development here. I plan to continue that and be a VOICE for ALL within our district.
This State House seat is important to me because these are the leaders the community leans on. For issues, for enhancements, for safety measures, these areas I want to apply my experience and work for our community. I am passionate, dedicated, and determine to see our district and citizens become the best we've ever had an opportunity to be.
Post high school, I joined the US Army. Best decision I've ever made. I had a will to serve and take care of my family, and that was the route I chose. Post high school I went on to study and achieve my BS in Marketing. Something else I was passionate about, though at the time I had no idea where or when I would follow that passion. I learned early on throughout my Military career what true leadership was and how proper strategies implemented can change the outcome significantly. I took my studies, applied my experience with strategic management and I opened my first business in Greenville South Carolina. Here is where I learned the art of networking, community, and service to a civilian capacity. I embraced the challenges and took on any opportunities to serve more. Being involved in real estate and doing transactions throughout the state has led me to a new appreciation for this great state we love.

Visionary Leadership for All of Greenville County
- History of Building Solid Collaborations: Throughout my time in District 19 I've spent many years building solid business relationships with the local business leaders and citizens all throughout this district.
- Understanding True South Carolina Concerns: I am committed to continuing learning concerns of all the citizens within our district. I pride myself as a net-worker. I will immediately be available to connect local problems with solutions from Greenville to the State House. I understand the hard work required and I know how to put South Carolina first. My key to success is leadership, relationships, and structure.
- A fighter: Some South Carolina communities are having a tough time, this is especially during these times. Here's the good news, with hard workers, all things are possible. I won't lose sight of what's in play. I want to incorporate back to business politics. Representation for all of South Carolina not just by party, but by residence! It's time to elect leaders who will sit at the table and represent everyone. I want to be that person.
