In his own words ...

Why did you choose UGA? I chose UGA because I grew up a bulldog fan and I always wanted to go to school here. UGA has a highly recognizable Turf program and I wanted to be able to learn from some of the best in the industry.

Why did you choose Crop and Soil Sciences? I chose Crop and Soil Sciences because I was interested in turfgrass and wanted to extend my knowledge in that field. 

Favorite things to do on campus: My favorite things to do on campus are going to football games at Sanford and hanging out with friends.

After graduation, I plan to: ... work for an installation company in the turf industry. After a few years I plan to start my own business.
