Hi Friends! Here are all the things you really want to know about me:

My wife and I have been together for 9 years. Lindsey Pippin, you should follow her Instagram, she is very entertaining and is a fantastic hair stylist! We live in Nashville with our two dogs, two cats, and two hamsters.

I’ve always had a thing for fashion; thanks mom! Especially, Shoes. I love shoes! I watch a lot of movies and yes I am a constant movie quoter. I am typically reading 2 different books at any given time; personal growth books as I cannot seem to read books for entertainment. I love traveling, exploring new places, and going on adventures like rock climbing, ropes courses, go-carts, zip-lining, you get the idea.

Side note, if you are curious about the picture on the home page; I would like to share a little insight. As I began my journey as an entrepreneur I wanted to stay Authentic to who I am. I love fashion and you will typically see me out and about wearing boots, jeans and a denim shirt or denim jacket. It’s just my look; like Steve Job’s black turtleneck sweater or Mark Zuckerberg’s grey t-shirt. However, when the occasion requires it, I wear a suit while presenting or giving a keynote. I wanted to share both sides of me and that’s also how I coach clients both personally and professionally. There you have it my friends, hope that gives some insight.

So many of the principles and values I have learned and applied in my life for the better, come from reading. Here are some of my favorites.
