I grew up in Lexington, SC where I was a graduate of White Knoll High School. From there I went to USC with an undergrad in History and jumped into graduate school for an ED.S in School Counseling. After finishing graduate school I got married to my wife Hannah and moved abroad to Korea to teach English for four years and moved back stateside in 2015. We had our first child, Chloe, during our time abroad (2014) and we currently have three children, Chloe, Mae, and Leo. During my free time I like to play with my kids, collect vintage baseball cards, listen to podcasts, eat like a teenager, and workout.
