"After high school, I joined the USAF. While stationed at Myrtle Beach AFB, I was deployed to Saudia Arabia during the Gulf War. I then attended UNCC completing my BA in Biology. A few years after graduating while working 3 jobs, I met my wife Paula. Shortly after meeting my bride, I made a drastic career change from health care into auto sales. Paula and I have 3 amazing children Tanner, Tucker, and Taylor. 17 short years later after joining Hendrick Automotive Group, I am blessed to be with an awesome team here at Hendrick Acura Charlotte."

Long ago way down in the jungle Someone got an inspiration for a tune And that jingle came from the jungle Became famous mighty soon Thrills and chills it sends through you Hot so hot it burns you too Though it's just the growl of the Tiger It was written in a syncopated way More and more they yell for the Tiger Everywhere you go today, they're shoutin: Where's that Tiger? Where's that Tiger? Where's that Tiger? Where's that Tiger? Hold that Tiger! Hold that Tiger! Hold that Tiger! C-L-E-M-S-O...N!
