After a few years of clogging, he returned to college and got a degree in Mechanical Design Engineering from Southern Polytechnic State University in Marietta (now Kennesaw State University) in the early 1990’s. After graduation, he went to work at Siemens Corporation for a brief time before returning to Valdosta to work with his family at Cowart Electric.
