I was born in Kansas, and raised in Southern Illinois. I stress the southern part of that statement because, as any Illinois resident will tell you, Springfield south is a whole different state than Springfield north. I Graduated from Frankfort Community High School in West Frankfort Illinois in 1990. I attended Southern Illinois University at Carbondale and studied Political Science. I moved to Nashville Tennessee in 2001 and quickly made middle Tennessee my home.
I have worked in the Information Technology (IT) field for over 15 years. I have worked on desktops and servers, managed departments and regions, worked as a network engineer, project manager and technical sales support. I have acquired many technical certifications along the way and served on some very prestigious boards and committees, I have even helped to write many exams for technical certifications such as A+, Net+, Security+, etc.
The IT field has been very good to me over the years, however I decided a few years back to begin a second career and a fulfill a life long dream to pursue earning a law degree. Along the way I went back to college to refresh my formal education and received a BA from Middle Tennessee University focused on business law. I accepted an offer to become part of Belmont University’s charter law school class in 2011. My expected graduation date is 2014.
While attending Law School I have continued to provide technical consulting services as well as assist various attorneys in their practice.
In addition to Law School and work, I am a father, husband, and outdoors enthusiast. Please do not hesitate to contact me for further information. And thanks again for checking out my digital home.
