Role at FastLane?

I work with candidates near the end of their discovery process. I help prepare and coach them through Confirmation Day, where they meet the franchisor for the first time. After the event, I work with them on finalizing the agreements and realizing their dreams of business ownership!

What do you love most about FRANCHISING?

I truly believe franchising is the best business model that the United States has ever produced. It allows individuals to take control of their future and become a business owner. Franchising allows candidates to focus on what they want to do day to day in their business and not be an expert in the industry. If you have ever thought, "I would love to own my own business but I just am not the ideal person," then franchising is likely for you!

Tell us about your family...

My wife Julie and I met here in Atlanta shortly after college and married in May of 2017. We had our first child, our son Michael, in October 2019. We are so lucky to have family close by in Atlanta. My Sister's family along with our niece and nephews and both sets of grandparents all live within about 20 minutes.



We are very close with our extended family and spend most of our free time on the weekends enjoying time at the park or having family cookouts. I am hooked on cooking and love trying different recipes on my Big Green Egg.
