About Me:


Growing up on a farm in Goodluck, Tennessee taught me that through hard work, determination, and a positive attitude, you can accomplish anything. I was taught that I could be whatever I wanted to be if I were willing to put in the work that it would take to accomplish my goals. I am proud of the fact that I was able to use those values instilled in me to work my way from feeding hogs as a boy to managing an engineering department for a world leader in manufacturing. I strongly feel that if you were to locate in our area, my years of experience in manufacturing and design would be invaluable to you and your company. I can sincerely say that I, as Gibson County Mayor, Solidworks design professional, and journeyman toolmaker would always be just a phone call away. Let ME help YOU!
