I grew up in Ravenswood, WV and am a graduate of Marshall University. I have lived in the great city of Huntington WV for all but four years of my life since my college days.

Huntington has always been my favorite West Virginia city since my early high school days when my Ravenswood Red Devil wrestling team participated in both the WSAZ and WV State wrestling tournaments in Huntington.

I have very fond memories from my college days at Marshall University. I was fortunate to be a member of Marshall University Thundering Herd Football team and earn a BBA in Finance. After college, I was able to have a long and rewarding career in sales and sales leadership in the wireless industry working as both an Area Manager and Director for AT&T in the greater WV area.

Over the years living in Huntington, I have witnessed beautiful growth in our incredible city. I have traveled extensively all over the US and have always looked forward to coming back home to #MyHuntington. The beauty of Ritter Park and Harris Riverfront Park are second to none. I have seen a small town blossom with the redevelopment of downtown which I am proud to be a part of. I have always stood firm in being an ambassador for Huntington stating that this city has so much to offer. This city holds so much beauty from an architectural standpoint. Take a drive down 5th Ave and see the beautiful, historical churches and all that they hold. Witness the incredible colors of the trees while driving down 3rd avenue during the summer to fall transition, it is remarkable. Most of all, I cherish the people of this great city. I have developed wonderful relationships with so many business leaders and have so many friends that are incredibly genuine, good people. I will always call Huntington my home and always be proud of this beautiful city.
