I was born and raised in Nashville and have lived for the last 23 years in the City of Belle Meade. After graduating from MBA and then from Georgia Tech with a Bachelor of Science degree in Architecture, I began working as a draftsman in an architectural office which lasted ten years until receipt of my architectural license. A partner and I then opened our own firm and for thirty years practiced architecture that included large varieties and types of construction. In 1998, I joined a development and engineering firm for which I had been active in the capacity as their architect and continue to the present as their architect and project coordinator.

In addition to a short stint as an Alternate on the Belle Meade Board of Zoning Appeals, I served on the Metropolitan Nashville Fire & Building Codes Appeals Board for eight years, being Chairman of that Board for two years.

I have been married for 61 years to the former Mary June Greer and we have two married sons and two daugthers-in-law, one single daughter and two granddaughters.

As an environment for living, Belle Meade is a most desirable place, with the private police force being the most appreciated benefit. The Public Works department is certainly the most cooperative of any municipality. The landscaping of the public areas defines the ambiance of the overall community and creates a catalyst for private property beautification.
