I grew up on Signal Mountain, attended school at Signal Mountain Elementary School and Thrasher Elementary, and attended Sunday School at Signal Mountain Presbyterian Church.

Education and Work Experience

I graduated from the University of Virginia with a Bachelor of Science in Commerce with a concentration in Finance and a Bachelor of Arts in Religious Studies. Since that time, I have provided financial planning and strategy for businesses, first at a local consulting firm providing financial consulting to mostly local businesses, and more recently internally at companies. I am currently the Chief Financial Officer of a locally-owned hospitality company. I have earned the Chartered Financial Analyst designation, a financial services industry designation considered by many to have some of the most stringent ethical and educational standards in the financial services industry.

My Family

My family and I are currently members at Signal Mountain Presbyterian Church, where we enjoy being active members. Our oldest is 11 and enjoys playing sports, hiking, cooking, and playing with his buddies. Our youngest is 6 and enjoys singing, dancing, gymnastics, and playing with her friends. My wife, Carolyn Rose, works hard to raise and provide for our family and enjoys reading a good book when she is not wrangling our two little ones.
