Growing up in the sign business with my parents definitely had its ups and downs, ladders in particular. I remember helping out with the little stuff when I was younger and working my way to bigger jobs throughout High School. I was always very active; I was captain of our soccer team and ran cross country senior year. I went to Governor’s School. I was also very active in our local Fire Department since I could join at 16. I continued to be involved where I went to college at The University of Virginia’s College at Wise. During my sophomore and junior years I was a Resident Advisor. I attended Baptist Collegiate Ministries. I was very active in intramural sports. I joined Kappa Sigma Fraternity and was also accepted into the Order of Omega. I was also the tech director for the Student Activities Board. Needless to say I was always willing to lend a helping hand and get involved. Although I didn’t know I would be starting a business with my family at the time, I graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration.
Before I narrowed down my degree concentration, however, I leaned towards Criminal Justice as I’ve been very interested in Law Enforcement since elementary school… or maybe it was my secret desire to be 007 and save the world? Regardless, the entrepreneur in me told me to study business. I suppose I love C.A.S.P.E.R. so much because it is an awesome tool with a number of practical uses and it also ties together my interest in business, my high regard for 911 services, and the Sign industry that I was born into. Although I may not ever be referred to as 007, C.A.S.P.E.R. can help the masses. It’s been a lot of fun developing C.A.S.P.E.R. with my family; you can see where the spark that inspired C.A.S.P.E.R. came from on our The Why Page. Now that C.A.S.P.E.R. is a reality, my mission is to see communities grow and feel more secure, to help non-profits take full advantage of the potential C.A.S.P.E.R. offers, and to make clear to sponsors how much more their advertising dollars mean to local non-profit organizations that can now offer the same benefits as T.V., Radio, Internet, Billboards, etc…
I’m always willing to lend a helping hand or an ear. Feel free to contact me to see what I can do for you.
