Years in Knoxville? What part of town do you live in?
28 years surviving Knoxville. I currently have just moved from the Rocky Hill area to Bluegrass.
Where do you work?
I am a boat sales manager/wakeboard proshop owner/ business planner/marketing manager/ event manager/ and a couple other things at American Boat Center in west Knoxville. Family owned and operated Since 1987.
What will you be blogging about?
My blogs will cover the areas of action sports (wakeboarding, skate, snowboarding, etc) and the business that surrounds it. I will also have several blogs about being a young business operator in town, as well as the unique people and events in Knoxville.
Tell us more about your background…
Well, I was born and raised here in Knoxville. I attended Farragut high school in west Knoxville. I went on to receive a degree in business and psychology from the University of Tennessee.
I currently am married to my wife Ashley (hailing from Memphis) and we have a 4 month old son Jack Malone.
I am passionate about Knoxville. I chose to continue my life here after college and am very pleased with my decision. I was excited to have an outlet to write about the things that Knoxville does not get to hear about on a daily basis, but many of us in the community are involved in.
What other interests do you have?
Wakeboarding has always been apart of my life since the early 90’s. Besides wakeboarding, music is a giant part of my life as a “wanna – be” drummer and general music fan. Local business also interest me to what makes people come to Knoxville for business and how small business is such a huge part of our local economy. On the whole, unity of the younger generation to make a difference for the future.
