My Life

“A day without laughter is a day wasted” – Charlie Chaplin

I grew up, free. Free from the “norms” which intrude society today. Born to hippies and raised in rural Alabama, I adapted ways to flourish in all landscapes and circumstances.

Personally, well that is interesting. I married the love of my life in 2022 and we blended 3 girls, 3 boys, a Maltese and 3 cats. Her lovely soul inspires me everyday, personally and professionally.

Professionally, that’s tricky. I love to build and in July 2013 established a recruiting and employer branding agency, SPLICE, We love the freedom and flexibility of entrepreneurship and ability to roam!

With so much time on our hands (insert laughing emoji) we run two stores HippieShine, an eco-friendly, consumer goods company that focuses on gear for everyday adventures. RetroMofo, a collection of vintage and vintage inspired goods, carefully created for the modern, retro guy.

Occasionally I address groups of 100 – 5,000 on an assortment of subjects using real-life experiences from my animated existence. Once upon a time I penned a book regarding social media in your job search.  I prefer adventure and seeing the world to anything else!
