I was born, raised, and still live in Dyersburg, TN. Dyersburg is a small town in west Tennessee about eighty miles North of Memphis, TN. I am married. My wife Jackie and I have been together for ten years. We don't have any children, but we do have the greatest dog named Sebastian. Sebastian is a 4 year old Great Pyrenees and Saint Bernard mix, weighs about 125 pounds, and lives inside with us. He really is like having another member of the family. As for hobbies, I am a woodworker. I also love watching motorsports like NASCAR and NHRA Drag Racing.
I graduated from Dyersburg High School in 1998. While a senior in high school, I participated in a vocational co-op program with the tool and die department of a local manufacturing company. This co-op program was the beginning of a four year career as a tool and die machinist. When physical limitations prevented me from continuing in this line of work, I decided to pursue a childhood dream of driving a truck. Jackie decided to join me on this new career. We learned to drive together and drove together as a team for two years. After those two years, I changed companies and drove another two years four months alone while Jackie stayed home due to health concerns with her parents. My career as a professional truck driver ended due to being diagnosed with Epilepsy.
