Tar Heel Born, Bred and Till I'm dead. Like Coach Williams, I am a Western North Carolina native and a 1999 graduate from McDowell High School. I entered UNC in August of 1999 and graduated in December 2002 with a double major in Political Science and History. From Chapel Hill, I went on to graduate school at the College of Charleston where I obtained a Masters degree in History in 2005. In 2009 I began working in politics and am currently a burgeoning political operative.
