After graduating from Appalachian State University, he was a reporter for The Alamance News and Creekside Chronicle in the Piedmont Triad area. Not too long after, he earned a master’s degree in health education at East Carolina University in 2011. He began working in an array of roles in the career education sector as well as the public school districts in the region. He is happy to have settled back on the Coastal Plain, where he lives in Leland with his lovely wife, Jessica, and sweet hound, Shaka.
