I grew up in Flint, Michigan where sports, parties, and girls were my main focal point. I wasn’t living for myself, I was living according to my surroundings. Soccer was my life at one point. Eat, sleep, drink soccer. My goal was to become the first immediate family member to graduate college and soccer was my gateway to making that dream a reality. The day before my senior season, bad news struck as I learned I was ineligible to play… GPA of my last semester junior year was atrocious. I immediately went into a depression that led to making some life-changing decisions.
Shortly after HS graduation, I enlisted in the US Marine Corps as an Infantryman, ready for whatever was thrown my way. I knew there were changes to be made, so why not join the Marine Corps!? Throughout my enlistment, I gained many qualities which ultimately led to where I am today.
Most importantly, the Marines led me to where my mindset currently is. I’ve learned very quickly that the human brain is the most powerful piece of equipment we would ever have access to. This allows me to live beyond fear and judgment-free (I try to omit judgment as much as humanly possible). This transition led me to Florida where I began to find more about myself through trial and error in different work industries. As an entrepreneur at heart, I was still very lost and confused not knowing where my true passion lies.
