My passion for authentic cuisine, fine wine, and quality service can be traced back to my travels across Europe. Inspired by what I experienced overseas, I returned to my hometown of Gainesville, Georgia and co-founded Cork It – Wine and Charcuterie. I have since brought a service-oriented mindset to all my business ventures, enriching North Georgia with culture, cuisine, and a community-focused atmosphere. I am co-owner of The Stag – Chophouse & Club, Peyton’s Pie Company, and Cork It – Wine and Charcuterie. I am also co-owner of RT Creative Group, a marketing company providing specialization in social media, photography, and graphic design. When I’m not serving wine or providing marketing expertise, I am investing in the future of my home state. I serve on the Future Leaders Board at the Peach State Bank & Trust, and also on the Board of Trustees at Center Point. I am dancing this year to give back – Center Point was an important part of my life and it’s the least I can do. Plus, it’s time for a young guy like me to take home the trophy!
