A Texas Tech graduate and the former owner of successful small businesses, I specialize in representing both buyers and sellers of pre-existing businesses both large and small. I was born and raised as the son of a minister and entrepreneur in Shreveport, LA. Prior to real estate investment and business brokering I was a professional athlete. I was blessed to play 8 years in the NFL for the Colts, Lions, Titans and Saints. Under Tony Dungy, I was a 2 year starter and in 2009 had a career highlight of playing in Super Bowl 41.

Why I’m Different
Leveraging my experience as a successful business owner, I am known for outstanding client service and as a skilled negotiator with my client’s best interest at heart. I believe that it’s my responsibility to represent my clients well and educate them through every step of the process by giving all the information my clients need to make the best decisions possible. I am honest, hardworking and extremely knowledgeable about the brokering industry.

I Believe in Giving Back
I am a firm believer in giving back. I am passionate about our local church families and community - Fellowship Bible Church, Franklin and Axis Church, Nashville.
