From as far back as I can remember, my dad has been the one that guided me and motivated me to excel in sports. He started coaching me in baseball, basketball and football once I was old enough to play. I can remember my father always taking me to the park working with me on all my skills, pushing me to be the very best I can be. I’ll never forget when I was in 6th grade, I made a no look pass from half court to a teammate that was right on the money, my father knew right then that I had a special talent. I know having someone there to mentor me and believe in me helped me to become the athlete I am.

Vocationally, I’m currently a sales consultant for a merchant service company. I have been working for this company eight years and have been the sales rep of the year five times. I love to create more opportunities for businesses to grow.

My favorite forms of competition today are sales, basketball, and golf.
