My best and most enjoyable times are spent with my family. Whether we are hiking on a sunny afternoon on Grandfather Mountain, watching an Appalachian State football game, or walking on the beach in Cherry Grove, there is no place I would rather be than with my wife, Fuschia, and our three children, Skylar, Thomas, and Mitchell. Having played competitive soccer from a young age through college, I understand the importance of a team, and my family is my team. Family is the most important part of my life. Because of this, I believe in the importance of planning for the future.
