I love to travel and experience all things new. I also love music and karaoke. I'm a bit rusty, but I still rock out my drum set from time to time. I'm married to a beautiful woman, Lauren Means. She's my rock. We've been together since 2005 and legally married in Metropolis, Illinois on June 9, 2014, which coincidentally is my parent's anniversary. We weren't planning for that date in particular. It just worked out and that's when I knew I had my father's blessing. He passed in 2012; however, as you get to know me, you will know him. We live in Murfreesboro, Tn and have three precious fur babies. Franklin and Daisy are our beagles and Scarlett is our cat. Our world revolves around them for the most part.
As you can tell I have many loves and Focus Middle Tennessee is my new found love! Prior to partnering up with Ray Rico, my best friend of 18 years, I had no idea what my next job/career move would be. I was tired and bored with all the jobs for which I had experience. I was finished working for others. I knew the only way I was going to be happy in my career was to be my own leader. Then, this opportunity came along and I absolutely love it. It's revived me. I have met more people in the past three months than I have in the past three years! And talk about welcoming with open arms. That's the welcome I've received. This is an exciting time for all of us involved with this magazine and we hope you all join us for the journey.
