So you want to know who I am? Well, sit back and relax. What you’re about to read will leave you thinking, “Wow, I’m glad I read this!” or “Holy moly, that’s 5 minutes I can never get back. What a dweeb.” Either way, you’re already here, so you might as well know I’m a Florida native but have lived in Nashville since 2005. My original goal moving to good ol’ rocky top Tennessee was to find work in video production. I started out in a completely different field: customer service. And by customer service, I mean working at a restaurant. Honestly, the job was one of the best things that’s happened for me because it was steady, it was in the evening, and was a great way to learn about Nashville. After a few months, I was hired for my first free-lance job working as a production assistant on this Carrie Underwood music video. So thankful for that job because since then, I’ve worked as a production assistant on music videos, commercials, short films, and in television. One thing led to another and bam, I landed at Country Music Television.
At CMT, I was an associate producer and yes, it’s possible to work in country music and not be a redneck, despite what you may see on TV. In a nutshell, my responsibilities included being a writer, a creator, an idea guy, and a television entertainer. But that was just my day job. In March 2015 I was laid off, and a new chapter began.
I love watching sports, mostly football. When it comes to playing sports, I’m good at most, but not great at any. I’m competitive. I have 2 dogs– a beagle and a blue heeler mix. You can read more about them by clicking Life With Dogs.
I’ve got family in Tallahassee, and Orlando, Florida. I’m a beach guy. I’m allergic to cats. I love peanut butter and I’m practicing a vegan diet.
