What is your all-time favorite spot in the Upstate?

All-time favorite spot would have to be, after climbing (on a bicycle) up Paris Mountain, going all the way to the top by the radio tower and just enjoying the view. On a clear day, you can see forever and just enjoy God’s Creation.

The Upstate is ranked on numerous Top 10 lists. What about the Upstate makes it unique?

Being born and raised in the area, the Upstate has such an inclusive atmosphere to offer for such a wide range of people – from food to entertainment to exercise — Greenville has the “it” factor every town strives for.

What is your favorite thing about Greenville?

The energy. As we all know, Greenville is no longer a secret. It also is no longer sleepy. It only take a few minutes on Main Street downtown to understand how special Greenville has become.

How long have you called the Upstate home?

Eleven years. I came to Greenville when I joined the HBA in 2007. Although I began spending time here when my son, Patrick, attended the Governor’s School for the Arts and Humanities in 2004. And the change has been amazing to watch, and participating in it has been fantastic
