I grew up on the other side of the Smokies near Asheville, North Carolina, where I played lots of sports, started fishing, mountain biking, golf, snow skiing, water skiing, camping, hiking, etc. 

I started at the University of Tennessee in the fall of 1990 where I would eventually take Geology 101 for what I thought was an elective class that I liked so much, and after talking to Otto Kopp and Don Byerly, I changed my major to Geology.  I graduated from UT in the spring of 1995 and began a 27-year career in environmental and hydrogeology.

While at UT in 1994, immediately after completing geology field camp, I met Tracie Seymour at Cotton Eyed Joes who later became my wife.  She and I have two daughters, Haley (freshman in college) and Cadence (8th grade).

In 2005 I started Singleton Environmental, Inc. in Asheville, North Carolina focusing on soil and groundwater remediation.  Since 2005 we have successfully closed out hundreds of sites using various remedial technologies including soil excavation, mechanical and microbial soil and groundwater remediation.

During my spare time my family and I enjoy traveling, hiking, mountain biking, camping, etc.  I’m not very active on social media, however,
I can be found on Facebook and LinkedIn.
