Title: Executive Vice President of Operations & Risk Management
Studio: Charlotte, NC
Personal Blurb: I’m a preacher’s kid from Virginia and a proud Gen X’r who fondly remembers the 80s as the greatest decade in history (except for parachute pants…yes I did have a pair but I don’t believe any photos exist). I enjoy spending time with my wife and three kids, staying active with running and other sports, but still enjoying a greasy cheeseburger from Five Guys (sorry In-N-Out fans). As an alumni of the University of Virginia I am a diehard Wahoo and fan of all college sports in general. I love my iPhone, iPad, Apple TV, and MacBook, but have no current desire for an Apple Watch.
Choose a Movie Title for Your Life: Star Wars: The Unknown Jedi: Mostly this is just because “Star Wars” is my favorite movie, and who wouldn’t want to be a Jedi? But, since I’m mostly unknown to the rest of the world, it’s got to have some elements of reality. So, it would probably have scenes of me using my lightsaber to cut the grass, using my Jedi mind powers to convince my wife to watch more college football instead of some show on the Cooking channel, and flying the kids to their sporting events in the Millennium Falcon.
Can You Play a Musical Instrument: I play several instruments, but none at a level worth writing home about. I took piano lessons as a kid, had a drum set as a teen, and as an old guy I picked up the bass guitar and play that occasionally in the church band (shout out to the crew at Lifepointe Christian Church in Fort Mill, SC!). Mostly my bass playing is limited to fulfilling my rock star fantasies with my headphones on at home jamming along with some classic rock on my iPhone.
3 Things on Your Bucket List: 1 – World travel (Italy, Australia, Ireland, New Zealand…), 2 – Watching Virginia win a national championship in football & 3 – Growing old with my wife Lisa and seeing all our kids and future grandkids come to know Jesus Christ as their savior.
Who In The Bible Do You Identify With the Most: I identify with Moses because he was often a reluctant leader who didn’t believe he was up to the challenge. Leadership is a heavy responsibility and I often question whether God can really use me in that role. But, like Moses, I have come to understand that God has led me along a great journey through my life and experiences, and with his strength and guidance I can be used by Him to help others.
What Does Being A Visioneer Mean to You: Being a Visioneer means getting to be creative while making an impact on the lives of thousands of people you’ll never meet. That comes from working with churches and other clients across the country that are serving their communities and changing people’s eternal destinations. Being a Visioneer also means being a trusted partner in transforming the vision and dreams of clients into 3-dimensional realities that are used as tools to facilitate building horizontal relationships with other people and a vertical relationship with our Creator.
