I was born and raised on the banks of the Tombigbee River in the Black Belt region of Alabama, an area known for its rich black soil. The region was home to the largest cotton plantations in the state, many of them still standing and in states of disrepair. I still call the region home. I am the son of a factory laborer and a public schoolteacher. I hold two degrees: one in office administration and one in medical assisting technology. I have worked in medical assisting in the past. I now work at a call center as a medical claims analyst.
I strive to always follow Christ and I was baptized into the body of Christ in 2009. I now teach Sunday school to senior adults and I'm a member of the hospitality ministry, where I serve the church by providing refreshments and meals at special events. I love to cook southern cuisine and sweet treats and read southern lit. I also love to sit on the front porch swing in the evening, as I am entertained by the sound of crickets singing and the sight of lightning bugs floating on a breeze. Life is good and I'm so thankful for my blessings.
