About Me

I have lived in Aiken County, S.C., all of my life and have been involved with newspapers since my senior year at Midland Valley High School (Class of 1994). I was editor of Pacer Times while attending USC Aiken. Then I worked for a couple of years at The Aiken Standard before crossing the river to Augusta about 14 years ago. When I'm not at work, I can usually be found at home with my wonderful family (Jamie, wife of 15 years; daughter, Abigail, almost 6; and several cats and dogs) or at the Aiken Community Playhouse, where I act, direct, stage manage and get involved in all sorts of theatrical shenanigans.
