After a couple years working in a dye-house he began to care take his grandmothers farm, was self-employed, and homeschooled his oldest child. He spent several years volunteering at RTM and occasionally a few other state parks as a Friend of Georgia State Parks and volunteers with scouting as an adult leader.
