When I’m not cheering on my kids at the soccer fields you can also find me at Chick-fil-a and if I were speaking in movie quotes were a language, I’d be fluent.  I’m married to a beautiful, loving woman who puts up with my geeking out and watching all the Apple Keynotes. I’m also a master at playing Power Rangers with my son and I have a killer princess voice that comes out when bonding with my daughter.

Using technology in your business doesn’t have to be stressful. We are Apple addicts who come alongside you to make sure you’re protected and that your apple devices are working for you so that you can focus on the work you love.

StylingMyEveryday.com

I am a Nashville native photographer, graphic designer, and stylist. I am the art director and creator of StylingMyEveryday.com, a food and lifestyle blog with a focus on styling, entertaining, and DIY.

With my family, which now includes daughter, Emmaline, and husband, Brent, I love spending time at home creating new recipes and entertaining family and friends.

Currently writing my first cookbook, to be released in Spring 2018, most of my days are filled with writing, recipe testing and photographing party how-to’s.

Woodtex & Riverwood Cabins

“I am a Texas native. Grew up in the Dallas-Ft. Worth area and then moved to Austin to attend the University of Texas (the real UT). After 8 years in Austin, my wife and I moved to Nashville in October of 2016. Hailing from Austin, we are definitely food junkies and in constant search of the best food around. My wife is a labor & delivery nurse and I oversee the finance and accounting organization at Woodtex. I am really excited to be a part of the Lodge community!”

Paul Farmer

Woodtex & Riverwood Cabins

I am a Kentucky boy that found my way to Tennessee and into the heart of a southern darling named Nikki. We’ve been married since the year 2000. I am also a Creative Director and spend my time developing two national brands: Woodtex and Riverwood Cabins. We help people make room for the important things in life by manufacturing gorgeous wooden structures, including Sheds, Barns, Garages, and Cabins. I love God, family, adventure, authenticity, and making memories. A fun fact about me – in 2011, Nikki and I moved to Hawaii for two years with our kids Samuel and Zoe!

Patrick Miller

Woodtex & Riverwood Cabins

VP of Marketing

I’m new to Franklin, having moved here (from Lancaster, PA) with my wife and four kids in June 2016. It’s easy to describe me alliteratively: faith, family, fitness, & facial hair. Weekends are spent with my family adventuring and learning more about our adopted hometown and the surrounding area.

As a marketer with Woodtex, I work with a passionate and smart group of people on a daily basis. I think a lot about how we can design and present our products and services in a way that our customers will find remarkable.

:: I AM A :: photographer | humanitarian | story teller | outdoorsman | world traveler | family man | and a lover of life & people

I have had the opportunity to travel the world and capture landscapes and life in their natural elements. I am also a family man first and foremost, and love to capture people’s lives in full action. There’s nothing better than capturing a moment that was true and pure, where someone had no idea that the lens was pointing right at them. That’s where real life is documented!
