I joined Converse in March 2020. I am a veteran of the Army Reserves, having specialized in Nuclear, Biological, and Chemical warfare. While in the reserves, I was employed with Milliken as a chemist. I then joined the South Carolina Highway Patrol (State Trooper) and retired in 2009 with 25 years of service. After retirement, I became an independent contractor for CSX and Northfolk Southern Railroads responsible for traffic control and protection. I am married with 2 children and I have an identical twin brother.
