I was born and raised in the small town of Tupelo, Mississippi. There I learned about and was exposed to music and specifically concert productions through Gopher-It Productions and The BancorpSouth Arena, both places where my dad worked. I developed a passion for creating productions of all sorts through my dealings with the field in high school at Shannon High and in college at Northeast Mississippi Community College. Through my years living in Tupelo, I developed some good relationships within the industry and worked with many talented people to create theater and concert productions. The passion that I had for doing this finally led to a position with Caesars Entertainment (the casino company) in Tunica, Mississippi. Currently, I reside in Hernando, Mississippi (15 miles south of Memphis, Tennessee) and work as the Regional Lighting Coordinator for Caesars Entertainment Mid-South. In this role I take care of the lighting and other aspects of production at two amazing venues, Bluesville at Horseshoe Casino and the Harrah's Event Center. I've had the privilege of working with many well-known, talented artists and thoroughly enjoy my job in the industry. I am always striving to move forward with my career and in the Spring of 2009, I decided to take the next step to help me learn more about the industry. I enrolled in the Entertainment Business Bachelor's program at Full Sail University. At the time of this writing, I am 2 months away from graduating from Full Sail with my Bachelor's Degree. As I mentioned before, I live in Hernando, Mississippi. I own a house there with my wife of 4 years, Ambere, and our two dogs, Casper and Lady. I am thrilled with what life has in store for my family and me, and look forward to my next steps in my career.
