Feeling accomplished and well-rounded, I graduated with Honors from Rickards High School and looked toward Florida A&M as my next scholarly step. Out I went, eyes bright, heart full of hope and motivation, into early adulthood, ready to live out the process of obtaining the American Dream.
And then life happened.
Although I’d started out on what seemed to be a bright and promising path, I found myself in some trouble – and in a few instances, trouble found me – so I spent years rebuilding from those “youthful indiscretions” while others focused on climbing corporate ladders and keeping up with the Joneses. It is amazing how one poor decision, one immature misstep (and the consequences that subsequently transpire) can set off a seemingly unbreakable pattern. However, based on what I experienced and the price I paid, I truly believe that the lessons I learned along the way are what made me the man I am today. The very mistakes that threatened my livelihood a decade ago have become the things that taught me the value of the things worth fighting for: family, Faith and the future.
In the interest of personal accountability and political transparency, I openly embrace my past and the struggles I’ve overcome because every day is a part of my story. I also feel as though I needed to have those experiences so that I could more accurately represent the spectrum of folks living in my hometown: Tallahassee!
Fast-forward to present day. I am a 32-year-old father of 4, though one is still on the way! I am proud to be married for 8 years to an amazing woman and am honored to have the chance to build a life with her.
I have over a decade of management experience in private and public sector which has equipped me with a unique ability to solve problems and navigate the tough situations that others tend to avoid.
It is this unique background and series of life experiences that gives me a keen understanding and relationship with the human experience. Tallahassee needs fresh, new leadership to continue moving forward and I am the candidate to make that happen. I understand that real leaders are merely humble servants and always lead from the front. It is this attitude and set of principles that will guide my decision making once elected.
