I was born and raised in Little Rock, Arkansas. I graduated (Summa Cum Laude) from the University of Louisiana at Monroe in 2009 with a major in Biology and minors in Chemistry and Psychology. Then, I attended the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences where I received my Ph.D. (Cum Laude) in December of 2013 in Interdisciplinary Biomedical Sciences with concentrations in Neuroscience and Pharmacology. I am currently attending the full time Law program at UALR. In my free time, I love spending time with my wife of 5 years and my family. I am an avid outdoorsman, and I like to hunt and fish.
