What drew you to Gulf Winds?
With my degree in Business and a minor in Global Logistics & Transportation, I was attracted to this industry as a whole. But, after learning about the vision and values of GWI, I knew it would be a great fit for me and my career.
What are you passionate about?
I am passionate about relationships. I am extremely close to my family and friends. Much of this is attributed directly to my parents as they always instilled in me the value of relationships and the power they hold throughout your life.
What excites you most about the work you do?
Being able to play a modest role in Gulf Winds’ expansion into new markets and developing long-term relationships with both GWI employees and our customers. This is especially true in Mobile where Gulf Winds has expanded to provide our world class service to a larger portion of the Gulf region.
What does your future hold?
My near future has the title DAD in it! I am really excited to embark on this next chapter as a dad, and continue to grow our family.
