It’s only fair to start at the beginning when sharing this person’s career accomplishments.

Their journey on the road to an advertising career began at the young age of 12 when they joined the newspaper industry by becoming a paper boy!

That fueled the fire to other career highlights such as Lawn Maintenance  and The Best Snowblower on the block, Chief Cook and Bottle Washer at the local McDonalds, Gas Station Attendent, and then onto a Janitor position at a local company in New York.

These jobs fueled a fire that led him to the Airforce for four years and awarding him such honors as Airman of the Year in the USAIRFORCE in Madrid Spain.

Upon returning to the US, he graduated from The University of South Carolina in Marketing and was named Marketing Student of the Year in 1986.

  • President Alumni Association, University of South Carolina, Coastal
  • SC Alumnus of the Year, 1994, Presented by SC House of Representatives
  • Lifetime Member Omicron Delta Kappa
