Before joining Virtual Peaker, for most of my career, I’ve designed for iGaming and sports betting platforms.

Primarily, I was responsible for wor

Given these “previous life experiences,” I’m well positioned to hit the ground running with Virtual Peaker to help craft the greener, sustainability-focused grid of the future!

I’m intrigued by Virtual Peaker’s sustainability ethos and eco-friendly culture and look forward to supporting these efforts.

What can you tell us about yourself?

I was born and raised in Mississippi and moved to Louisville upon graduation from The University of Mississippi. I’m married to my high-school sweetheart and we have two amazing sons… and two adorable English Bulldogs. Outside the office, I enjoy visiting Cherokee Park and exploring Louisville’s fantastic food scene, while also rooting for my beloved Ole Miss Rebels and Kentucky Wildcats – Hotty Toddy and Go Big Blue!
