I was born and raised in Shreveport and graduated from Captain Shreve High School. After not being drafted by the Atlanta Braves (or any other MLB team) following my high school playing career, I decided to take my talents to College Station, Texas and become a Fightin’ Texas A&M Aggie.
While at A&M I initially majored in Biology/Pre-med with dreams of becoming a pediatric surgeon. After two years of studying biology I decided that law school would be a better option for me. I graduated from Texas A&M with a bachelor’s degree in Agricultural Leadership & Development and before departing Aggieland for law school briefly served as an Extension Agent for Texas A&M AgriLife Extension service. Should A&M need a new athletic director anytime soon, my phone line is open.
I made the move from College Station, Texas to Baton Rouge, Louisiana to attend Southern University Law Center in August of 2010. While in law school I clerked for Louisiana Sea Grant where I focused on issues affecting the Louisiana coast and its wetlands.
After becoming a licensed and barred attorney I quickly gained experience by practicing in criminal defense and personal injury. Besides those areas of law I have also gained experience in municipal government law, family law, title work and have served as Staff Attorney for the Chapter 13 Bankruptcy Trustee of the Middle District.
In 2020 I made the move back home to Shreveport to serve as an associate attorney here at Perkins & Associates, LLC.
While not at work you can usually find me on the golf course working on skills and drills that I have picked up from Youtube or the Golf Channel (which never seem to work) or at the batting cages working on skills to help the San Antonio Reds win the Father/Son Division of the Men’s Senior Baseball League World Series (so close in 2015). More than likely I can be found at Galilee Baptist Church where I teach Sunday School and participate in Bible Study and Men’s Spiritual Bootcamp. (Galatians 2:20)

Favorite Quotes: “I wanted you to see what real courage is, instead of getting the idea that courage is a man with a gun in his hand. It’s when you know you’re licked before you begin but you begin anyway and you see it through no matter what. You rarely win, but sometimes you do.” – Atticus Finch (To Kill a Mockingbird)
“You just hold your head high and keep those fists down. No matter what anybody says to you, don’t let ‘em get your goat. Try fighting with your head for a change.”- Atticus Finch
“Darkness cannot drive out darkness: only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate: only love can do that.” – Martin Luther King Jr.
Favorite TV show: ESPN Sunday Night Baseball or The Cosby Show.
