After graduating high school in Wake Forest, NC, I went into the US Air Force and enjoyed a 22 year career as a Flight Engineer aboard C-130 cargo aircraft flying missions all over the world. I got to do cool things like flying hundreds of US Army 82nd Airborne's finest paratroopers over the drop zone, transport the President's limousine and deliver aid to struggling communities following natural disasters. Additionally I deployed multiple times flying combat missions in the Balkans, Iraq and Afghanistan. Along the way I moved a lot but found time to earn a degree in Industrial Technology from Southern Illinois University. After retiring I continued to serve as a contractor and led an aircraft maintenance team for Army Special Operations Command. My service often took me away from my family so when I had the opportunity to put down roots I took it. I love living and working in the Holly Springs, Fuquay-Varina community and I'm passionate about helping people meet their real estate goals.
