I was born in Greenville, NC, but spent most of my youth in Wrightsville Beach, of course, on the beach. I have now lived in Raleigh for 17 years with my wife, Kim, a Chapel Hill native. We have three children, Mary Mac, Katharine, and Hugh, who are all unique and special in their own ways. We also have a little Westie who is playful, kind, and loved by everyone. Golf is my favorite sport and I try to play once a week. Another good place to find me is running in the neighborhood or exercising in the gym. I also enjoy tennis, basketball, and traveling with family. I am passionate about giving back to the community. I volunteer on a regular basis at an outpatient clinic at a local hospital called Wake Smiles and am involved in the Hayes Barton United Methodist Church.
