My undergraduate degree is in Philosophy from Auburn University, and I'm currently progressing through The University of Colorado Denver's MS in Information Systems program.

I was once described as a "an especially friendly local" by The Washington Times.

I co-founded Redmont Distilling Company and exited the company in 2017. In my time with Redmont we were the #1 (by ABC sales) Alabama-produced Vodka and Gin, and we won numerous awards including "Alabama Distillery of the Year".
