Questions & Answers

What are you working on right now?

I recently established Pro Sports Ventures LLC to purchase equity in South Carolina Pro Hockey LLC, the ownership group of the Greenville Swamp Rabbits of the ECHL. I am working to grow our impact in the Upstate from a community engagement perspective and forge mutually beneficial relationships with current and future partners of the organization.

What made you venture into professional sports, and specifically pro hockey?

I have a passion for hockey and am blessed to have had a great career, providing me an opportunity to venture into other things now. The organization is in some ways a start-up project so there are challenges, and that is largely what drew me to it. I savor opportunities that require me to grow and develop and the building blocks are in place for success - the ownership group, staff, arena and a thriving market. In addition to being a Managing Member of the ownership team, I am also excited to serve on the League's Board of Governors.

Are you involved in other endeavors?

My wife and I also own and operate a branded kickboxing studio and own other territories that will allow us to build a network of studios. Again, this has been a great growth opportunity for both of us, for which we are very thankful for. Additionally, we own and manage a portfolio of real estate assets in the Carolinas through our first company, Huckleberry Holdings, LLC. Finally, we are continually looking for ways to become involved and give back to our communities.

Are you looking for other opportunities?

Yes! As a member of two boards, I am available to serve on one more, be it a corporate or non-profit entity.
