This summer has been a blur and seemingly, far from over. Over the past 3 months, I’ve had the opportunity to explore the Southern states of Mississippi, Louisiana, Alabama and South Florida. Some work, some play but overall an education.
My summer started out by having to go to Gulfport, MS for Naval Reserve training. Yes, after 8 years of active service, I’m still a part time warrior.

The position allows for me to expand my knowledge of the construction industry and continue service to my country. We’re largely rockstars. That’s all.
I apologize for my absence but I’m back (smile). My decision to relocate to Augusta, Georgia is coming full circle. Augusta is humming right now and it feels great to be back to work. [...]
