I was born in a small suburb south of Chicago, Illinois, called Blue Island. I arrived in Utah after being stationed at Hill Air Force Base. Although I enjoyed my time in the military, the job did not suit my peaceful sensibilities or my inclination toward helping others in a personal capacity. Working with kids, whether it be mentoring, coaching, or teaching, is my passion. My dream, as grandiose as it sounds, is to enact change in the urban areas of America by developing social and athletic programs, promoting education and creating community solidarity activities to counteract the influence of gangs, drugs and sedentary lifestyles. I plan to use my podcast as a networking and marketing tool for my friends and associates, as well as a springboard for my community endeavors.
