A LITTLE ABOUT ME

I was born in Dunedin Beach, FL and spent my childhood and young adult years in Roswell, GA. I graduated from Roswell High School in 1992. I attended Stetson University in DeLand, FL where I obtained my BS degree in Biology in 1996. Eleven years later, I graduated with an AAS degree in Horticulture from St. Louis Community College in Kirkwood, MO.

I am a professional horticulturist, biologist, and naturalist with over fifteen years of experience in the horticulture industry. Since 2014, I have been a stay at home dad, which is truly the most challenging, yet rewarding job that I have ever had. Presently, I work part-time for a local nursery and garden center, delivering and installing trees and shrubs, as well as other garden products and décor.  I am a volunteer and also on the board for Kirkwood Area Every Child Promise (KAEChP).  WE offer preschool scholarships and family support.  For more information or to donate please visit https://kirkwoodareaeverychildpromise.org/ .

Long are the days since my childhood, but the memories will last a lifetime. I finally feel at home in St. Louis and a sense of community, living here now for almost twenty years, I have a family of my own.  We are fortunate to have our immediate family here and look forward to another fifteen years as we create a new chapter of home grown living.
