I was born in 1959 in Anderson South Carolina and have lived there for the most part all of my life. I attended primary school locally. After graduating from High School I attended West Georgia College (now the University of West Georgia) in Carrollton, Georgia for the next four years and graduated Valedictorian in Pre-Med. I accepted a full scholarship to the Medical University of Georgia in Athens where I graduated MD after four more years of intensive study. I then served a residency of four years at Georgia Baptist Hospital under the watchful eye of Dr. Harvey Cleckley after a six-month vacation from my studies and life in general. I opened my first private practice in Seneca, South Carolina and became a member in good standing of the Hospital Physicians Staff. After a period of about three years, when I had developed the practice into what I had intended for it to be I took on my first partner Dr. Hasan Bin Sobar, M.D. from eastern India.
From there our practice has grown by leaps and bounds and we now have offices in five cities in the Tri-State area and are looking at expanding further still.
My initial training in professional Wrestling was at the Wahoo McDaniels school of Professional Wrestling at the old Shamrock Café in Boiling Springs, South Carolina that is now run in Chesnee by my friend Chief Jay Eagle. Big Mack Truck and former WCW Referee Jamie Tucker initially trained me as a referee. While working as a referee at the APW in Boiling Springs I started working in Laurens, South Carolina at SCW for the one and only Desperado. After having some health problems, which prevented me from continuing my career as a referee, I became involved with, and helped form, the IWA in Anderson, South Carolina, which is operated by Promoter Wanda McCurley, and the incomparable Manager of Champions, Johnny Love. I began my stay at the IWA as Commissioner and later became a Manager.
