Before moving to Savannah, Palumbo served as a Special Agent in the United States Foreign Service where he traveled abroad ensuring the safety of American diplomatic policy overseas. During his service he was decorated with the Meritorious Honor Award for service rendered at US Embassy Baghdad, Iraq.

He lives with his wife Kristen and their five rescue pets in a bungalow in Chatham Crescent. They own and operate a small pet care business together, and when he’s not working you’re most likely to find him out tending the garden.
