A Fresh Look With Experience Serving
Years ago I returned to Greenville County, this time for good. I'd been away, off and on since the age of seven. During my several moves with family, I spent time learning and developing as a Soldier, deploying to Afghanistan, and returned to become a local business owner. Here, I bring myself, family and friends to serve in Greenville County.
I have several memories growing up in Greenville. I attended Hughes Academy and South Side High School in the area before departing for North Carolina. I stayed active, participating with the Urban League step team, orchestra group, ROTC and Speech & Debate. All of which I feel groomed me to become the man I would journey on to become. The Greenville I left as a young man, is nothing like the Greenville I returned to, and is certainly nothing like the Greenville we enjoy today.
Greenville has become a premier place to live, work and raise a family! Honored to live in a community that has taken such strides in becoming a key destination for thousands. There are members within our communities I am proud to have watched and received mentorship from that has been instrumental in the growth and development here. I plan to continue that and be a VOICE for ALL within our County.
County Council is important to me because these are the leaders the community leans on. For issues, for enhancements, for safety measures, these areas I want to apply my experience and work for our community. I am passionate, dedicated, and determine to see our Greenville become the Greatest Greenville.
Post high school, I joined the US Army. Best decision I've ever made. I had a will to serve and take care of my family, and that was the route I chose. Along the way my post high schools studies were in Advertising and Marketing. Something else I was passionate about, though at the time I had no idea where or when I would follow that passion. I learned early on throughout my Military career what true leadership was and how proper strategies implemented can change the outcome significantly. I took my studies, applied my experience with strategic management and I opened my first business in Greenville South Carolina. Here is where I learned the art of networking, community, and service to a civilian capacity. I embraced the challenges and took on any opportunities to serve more.
Currently Serving on the Board of Directors for Greenville County - GADC - Greenville Area Development Corporation.
Visionary Leadership for All of Greenville County
- History of Building Solid Collaborations: Throughout my time in Greenville I've spent many years building solid business relationships with the local business leaders and citizens within Greenville County.
- Understanding Greenville County Concerns: I am committed to conintuing learning concerns of all the citizens within Greenville County. I pride myself as a networker. I will immediatley be available to connect local problems with solutions. I too understand the leadership, relationships, and structure of our county government.
- Voice for All Greenville: I will represent ALL the people of Greenville County. The bad taste in the mouths of the Greenville community are correct as they stand. Unfortunately the views are accurate too. Here's the good news, I want to change that! I want to incorporate back to business politics. Representation for all of Greenville County not just by party, but by residence! It's time to elect leaders who will sit at the table and represent everyone. I want to be that person.
