Thank you for wanting to learn more about myself. Now first, many people accidentally visit my blog mistaking me for Brad Pitt because of our facial similarities;) If you are one of these people, I am flattered but you are apparently at the wrong site. I do, however, hope you stick around a little longer.
For those of you really looking for my blog, you are almost at the bottom of your to-do list! The next item on your list is either clean out your glove compartment or catch up on the Gun Smoke episodes.
To give you a background on myself (which all inquiring minds want to know), I was born in Nashville, Tennessee and grew up with 2 great brothers and loving parents. My father hails from Maryland and his family is from Virginia close to Walton’s Mountain. My mother who was born a Crockett was reared in east Tennessee (reared is what they say over there). She’s cool because she is actually kin to Davey Crockett. You know Davey Crockett, The King of the Wild Frontier!
I am married (sorry ladies) to a great woman and we have a daughter named Amelia (named after my mother-in-law) and twins Crockett (named after my mother’s maiden name) and Olivia (name selected by my wife because she just liked it). We share our home with a precious toy poodle named Itsy Bitsy (it’s really her place, we just pay the mortgage.)
In 2008, I decided (with my wife’s permission of course) to disrupt our beautiful lives, family, friends, career, and our small technology consulting business in middle Tennessee and get my MBA. Not just any MBA but one from the top Entrepreneurship MBA Program in the world (that is how we roll).
After reviewing the top 3 entrepreneur programs in the world: Babson, USC and University of Arizona, we selected the Eller MBA Program at the University of Arizona in Tucson, Arizona. Eller’s Entrepreneurship program, caring staff and small class sizes along with Arizona’s climate and low-cost of living were the perfect fit. Needless to say, the next 2 years following that decision were both an exciting and busy period for us.
After graduation from The University of Arizona Eller MBA, I partnered with Jarret Hamstreet, a classmate of mine from Eller, and we launched Post.Bid.Ship. Post.Bid.Ship. is an online exchange which helps match commercial shippers of freight with carriers. After 3 years as CEO of Post.Bid.Ship., I stepped down so I could spend more time with my growing family. My last day as CEO was actually the day our twins were born. (To read more about my decision to step down and to see a photo of my 3 awesome kids, click here.)
Several months later, my family and I move back to our home state of Tennessee so we could spend more quality time with our extended family and I could be here to help my ailing father who had grown sick and care for him and my mother during his final days. Needless to say, I am a person who prides himself on embracing life, love my family and work hard to have no regrets (to read how I embrace Jeff Bezo’s Regret Minimization Framework, click here).
Till then, this is enough about me (I could go on for days). Please enjoy your visit and feel free to write me if you like the site.
