In early 2009, I joined the Rotary Club of Navarre and it has been a very rewarding experience. Although
our club is not a large one, the quality of the membership is exceptional and I have forged many lifetime
friendships as a result. Working together to do great things in our community has allowed for great
fellowship and amazing experiences. The networking opportunity was way better than I expected
because I really got to know everyone better through our weekly meetings and build trusting
relationships which have helped me grow both personally and professionally.

I’ve been married to my college sweetheart Patti over 23 years and we are blessed with three wonderful
sons. One of my passions is coaching youth sports where I get the opportunity to help shape young boys
into young men while instilling time proven values like discipline, commitment, team work,
perseverance and leadership. I have been very active as a community leader with the Navarre Youth
Sports Association where I currently serve as the Vice President of the Board and have served as a
Director for seven of the last eight years. I graduated from the University of Florida in 1991 with a
Bachelor Degree in Business Administration with a major in Finance and am a member of the Kappa
Sigma Fraternity and Florida Blue Key, UF’s most prestigious leadership honorary society.

Professional – As the Regional Manager of Southpoint Financial Services, Inc., I get to help my clients realize their
dreams of home ownership. We specialize in residential mortgage lending offering VA, FHA, USDA and
Conventional loan programs. As a HUD Approved Lender, our rates and programs are very competitive
and our local service is second to none. Furthermore, we are also able to provide down payment
assistance programs to first time home buyers to help them purchase a home they can afford.

A mortgage finance and credit expert for over 25 years, I am able to provide a level of knowledge and
experience to my clients and referral partners that is truly unique in today’s mortgage market. I was the
Co-founder and Senior Vice President of Lendmark Financial Services, a $700 Million Atlanta based
subsidiary of BB&T Bank for 10 years and District Manager for Fleet Finance for 4 years prior to that. I
believe in educating my clients and guiding them to make the best financial decisions possible to help
