About Me

I am a unique person with a very diversified background. I have always participated in many forms of sports and that competitiveness transcends over into my business and professional life. I use my experience base which includes developing and growing a major CPA firm, working as a Vice President of a nationally recognized liberal arts college, and working in various aspects of the real estate business. I have owned and developed real estate, I have performed many consulting assignments in real estate, and have participated in the sale of literally several hundred million dollars of real estate sales either utilizing auction marketing or through traditional brokerage.

My education includes a BSBA in Accounting, an MBA with emphasis on finance, economics, and marketing, and I am a Certified Public Accountant (inactive with good standing status which means I can activate the license if I want.)
I have held real estate and auctioneer licenses in various states including Arkansas, Tennessee, Mississippi, Alabama, Florida, and South Carolina. I also hold a Landman Certificate which signifies training I’ve had in mineral searches, reading of legal descriptions, and ownership lineage.

In additional to the above mentioned business endeavors, I have owned several other businesses including a Hertz Rental Agency, an 1100 acre cattle farm, and a high tech company that specialized in mitigation of environmental issues in coal fired generation activities.

Aside from business, I have a passion for outside activities including running, hiking, swimming, and anything that involves sucking the marrow out of God’s wonderful creations. Carpe’ Diem (seize the day!) has always been a motto of mine. I generally do not feel fulfilled unless I have several balls in the air at the same time. I want. Need. And love to be engaged. I feel charged up and excited when people appreciate me for whom and what I am.
I love to travel, meet new people, and engage in intellectual conversations. In that regard, I am a voracious reader. I read everything ranging from biographies, true crime, philosophy, history, and sports. I have a passion for music even though I only play the guitar a little. I love all genres of music except rap and hard rock.
To sum me up: I am a bit complex. I love to work a crowd but at times I love just curling up with a book or just sitting quietly and meditating. Love God, Live Slow, Work Smart! God, Family, Work—the order of my priorities.
