I was born and raised in Huntsville, and with the exception of attending Auburn, I have lived here all my life. I graduated from Auburn in 2011 and I currently work for BB&T Bank as a branch manager and small business lender. When I am not working, I enjoy playing golf, and playing drums in my band called “Liquid Caravan.” I serve on the board as the Vice President and am responsible for the general planning and administration of the club’s events and operations. You can contact me with any questions or thoughts on the club’s events, or about how you can be involved with the club. My favorite Auburn moment was the day that both of my younger sisters graduated from Auburn. It was on that day that I, my father, and both of my sisters could all say that we were Auburn graduates.
