How long have you been in Greenville? 27 years
Most interesting fact about you: Having identical twins is not genetic. However, my great-grandfather was an identical twin, my mom is an identical twin, and now I have twin identical daughters.
Your background: I was born and raised in the Greenville area.
Somewhere around the 7th grade my friend handed me his camera to get some video of him doing "stunts" on his skateboard. I knew that day that photography/videography was my passion.
After Chapman High School, I joined the military, serving in the United States Army as a Unit Supply Specialist and Armorer. I was responsible for my unit's inventory of supplies, including the weapons that were distributed to soldiers within my unit. I had the opportunity to travel throughout the world, too. This benefit included a one year stint in Uijeongbu, South Korea.
After serving in the United States Army, I lived in Charlotte, NC to attend the Art Institute. It was here, in college, that I would develop the skills to start life as a civilian: Sales and Business Development.
I relocated back here to Greenville from Charlotte, where I am now married and have three amazing children: two twins aged five, Sophia and Kinley, and my son, Nova, who is six.
