I was born and raised in Natchez, MS. I am married with four grown children. I moved to Brookhaven, MS., in 1995. I have worked public jobs in the sales business, but always did remodeling part time . I helped my Dad build two homes while growing up. This is when I knew I had found my life long passion - building.
After several years in sales, I went to work in the oil industry, selling working interest in drilling ventures. With that knowledge I went to work in oil service company industry for Dia-Log, recovering stuck drill pipe using C-2 and C-4 explosives as well is 50 and 100 grain prima cord. I then worked for National Tank Company servicing well locations, both oil and natural gas, also installing separator systems. All of these ventures and jobs gave me much insight about responsibility, dedication, honesty, and dignity, but mostly about being fair and impartial.
I was doing building and remodeling during those years also. Still my passion. I have been doing it full time for over 30 years. I got my real estate broker license and remodeling license. This enabled me to do remodeling, additions in residential and light commercial fields. I acquired my residential builder license to build new homes. I am still very active in the construction business actively building new homes and business.
