I was born and raised here in Newton County. Upon graduation from Newton County High School in 1993, I enlisted into the United States Navy and served on board the USS Abraham Lincoln (Aircraft Carrier). After the military I returned home and took the helm of our family owned Construction business. I am the CEO of Sims Excavating Inc, a partner with Southern Homes Unlimited, LLC (co-owned with my wife) and I am the CEO of Dualdeko Design and Marketing. I have a bachelor degree in business administration. I have been married for ten years (Bionca Sims) and we have a newborn son (Preston). I am also a member of Springfield Baptist Church. I am a member of several civic organizations and I spend a lot of my time fundraising for local non-profits.
