What I love about my work:
Positively impacting the lives of fellow North Carolinians, especially our under-resourced populations, is an opportunity in which I really take great pride. I’m fortunate to work with a great team of like-minded individuals who are passionate and committed to improving the health and well-being of everyone in our state.

When not at my desk:
I’m an active musician who loves multiple music genres; and I’ve been fortunate enough to play behind Grammy and Stellar award-winning artists. When I’m not at a rehearsal, gig, or doing studio work, I’m usually at home enjoying time with my wife and son.

Favorite thing about North Carolina:
I love the beautiful, diverse geography of the state and the friendly people. I think it’s great to have the modern amenities of city living combined with that good Southern hospitality.
