I was raised near the coast in Loris, South Carolina before continuing my education in the the foothills at Clemson University. I received a B.S. in Agricultural Education, and a M.S. in Plant and Environmental Sciences from Clemson University taking a particular interest in turfgrass. Previously I was a high school agricultural science teacher before returning to the Upstate. I take pride in helping others and beautifying our areas with plants and wildlife.

 Research Interests

Past research has investigated potential health benefits and effects of pigmented products on sports and golf turf as well as efficacy of various fertilizers, pesticides, and growth regulators with current research investigating potential heavy metal toxicities on golf course greens.
