I am a strategist, teacher, and business coach for My Business On Purpose.
My vocational blueprint began to start being drawn outside the lines growing up circling the Continental U.S. being born in the Nation’s Capital, then living in Charlotte, Houston, Portland, Greenville, and finally graduating from the University of South Carolina in 1997.
While at USC, even though a below average High School athlete, I had the opportunity to walk-on to the Gamecock football team, and work myself up to a full scholarship in my first exploitation of a “niche market”. Many boys growing up can kick, throw, and catch a football, but only a few can throw a football upside down, between their legs, with 300 lb. linemen staring them down. That’s right, I was a deep snapper at USC. It is the one position you never hear about…until you mess up.
After graduation, Ashley and I married and launched off to an adventure that still continues to this day with stops in the following towns for a variety of roles:
2. Augusta, GA – Pfizer Sales
3. Keller, TX – Associate Pastor at FBC Euless, TX
4. Burleson, TX – Founding and Lead Pastor at LifePointe Church
5. Bluffton, SC – Pfizer Sales, and current roles
Diversity in locations and roles has provided me a unique seat from which to view businesses, Churches, and cultures literally around the world.
Previously, as the International Administrator for HELP, Inc. it was my privilege to work with multi-cultural teams both in the U.S., and in Nigeria, to make disciples through sustainable partnerships within six domains of SW Nigeria.
My background in these roles includes direct and B2B sales, designing and implementing organizational strategy, training and development, marketing and fundraising, along with teaching and speaking.
I read constantly and pursue learning with a great hunger. God’s Word is the basis of my learning, the gateway to my relationship with Jesus Christ, and the value set of my worldview.
I love to coach, explore, eat, and drive, and one day will learn to fly!
Ashley and I travel whenever possible, and we place a priority of enjoying a variety of experiences with our three children.
