The North Charleston native graduated from Southern Wesleyan University with a degree in criminal justice, but he knew it wasn’t a career he wanted to pursue. After graduation, he relocated to Greenwood and took a position with Eaton Electrical. Over time, he knew he needed a change. “I reached that point where I liked my job, but I didn’t want to be in that position for the rest of my life,” he said.
