I grew up in Tuscaloosa, AL; "Home of the National Champions'" if you will. I went to undergrad at Birmingham Southern College where I majored in Political Science, which basically became a grad level quantitative and qualitative research methodology course. During this time I maintained and even excelled at school despite my hunger for seeing as many Widespread Panic shows as humanly affordable or possible.
I had an exporting business down in St. Pete Beach, FL/Tampa area and moved back to Tuscaloosa to start an upstream oil and gas trade journal.
I began teaching myself Adobe CS5 and began doing freelance projects for local businesses and individuals. I am currently enrolled in the Master of Fine Arts in Media Design program at Full Sail University.
