I decided to become a forester later in life and that decision that led me back to college at the age of 33. After graduating Mississippi State University in 1993, I accepted a position with Rayonier and moved to Dublin, GA. The year 1998 brought a different opportunity with Weyerhaeuser. I settled in Magnolia with my wife and daughter and have been here ever since. My work experience was often centered in purchasing and harvesting but I have practiced all other facets of the timber and land business.
