He grew up in Rome, Georgia, studied music business at Belmont University in Nashville, and then made a shift into a successful sales career after spending some time in the music industry. When the pandemic hit, he started documenting and sharing his passion for bourbon tasting through his podcast and social media platform, Finer Sips.
