I was born in Lakeland, Fl and attended the Polk County Schools. Upon graduating from High School I married my High School sweetheart Elaine. I always wanted to be an accountant so I attended Florida Southern College, our local private Methodist College, and earned a BS in Accounting and MBA. While attending school and climbing the corporate ladder we raised two children who are now married. Elaine and I have four grandchildren. During the 1990’s I changed vocations attended Duke University and became a United Methodist pastor. I recently retired in September 2018 and am excited about what I’m learning about affiliate marketing. My goal is to make some additional spending money so I can enjoy retirement years with Elaine. We have worked hard since getting married in 1974 and now we want to continue to work hard but also mix in a little bit of retirement fun!!
