I was born in Holyoke, Massachusetts. My family moved to Charlotte, NC when I was a kid and I have lived in and around the Queen City since.
I attended UNC Charlotte as a mathematics student eventually graduating with a BA in Religious History with an emphasis in early Christian origins.
By profession I am a former member of the PGA of America, although I am no longer working in the golf business. I enjoyed 23 wonderful years as a club pro and playing professionally. I managed both private and public golf courses in the greater Charlotte area. I now work for a large media company training marketing executives across the southeast U.S.
I began experiencing MS symptoms in 2007 and although multiple sclerosis affects my life is does not dictate my life. I enjoy working as a Movement Ambassador for the National Multiple Sclerosis Society, public speaking and raising awareness for an MS cure.
I founded the Dream Big, Dream Often community to assist in helping others realize their potential and reach their goals, but it has grown into something much more than that.
I currently reside in North Carolina with my beautiful wife, Evelina, and our dog, Bentley.
I hope you enjoy my writing and find a little inspiration and motivation to make your Dreams come true!
