I am a native of the Mid-South, having grown up in Collierville, Tenn. I graduated from Memphis University School in 1977, spend a year in New South Wales and Queensland, Australia as a Rotary International Exchange Student, then attended Southern Methodist University and graduated in 1982 with a Bachelors in Business Administration. Since then served for a time in the USAF, and have worked in the marketing, wholesale, and retail segments of the wine and spirits industry including five years as a store owner. I also have about a dozen years experience in computers, network management and corporate IT. In 2003 I applied to the University of Memphis law school, was accepted, and became a 1L in 2004. In 2005 I sold my business, finished law school in December 2007 and passed the bar in the spring of 2008. I'm currently employed with Fisher & Associates, Inc., which is a design firm specializing in commercial kitchen facility design where I serve as corporate counsel and wear several hats. The work is interesting and keeps me away from the courtroom, plus we travel - but not too much - and we dine very well. Outside of work, am a member of the Civil Air Patrol/USAF Auxiliary, which I joined in 2003. The traditional mission of CAP is Air Search & Rescue, but in recent years it has expanded to include Disaster Relief activity, Airborne Photography and other activities. I am a rated Mission Observer and am working on becoming a Mission Pilot. After becoming a lawyer, I was appointed a CAP Legal Officer, which is similar to a military JAG, and this serves as my pro bono work. I also served as Commander of West Tennessee region from 2010 through 2014.
