WHO I AM

Hardworker – Reliable – Resilent – Dedicated – Evolving – Improving are words I use to define myself.  I’m from the south side of Chicago growing up in the city and moving to the suburbs shortly before high school.  I went to college in Dayton, OH at University of Dayton where I had the opportunity to intern and co-op for in the construction, composite, automotive, and healthcare industries to pay for school.  During college I was also involved in National Society of Black Engineers (NSBE), National Associate for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP), and initiated into Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity, Inc. – Gamma Theta Chapter.  I am a 2x University of Dayton graduate obtaining a bachelor’s degree in Industrial Engineering and master’s in Engineering Management.  I now work as a project managing engineer for a food and agricultural company in the Milwaukee area where I manages capital projects varying from several thousands to multi-million dollars in value.  However, despite my success I feel I can do more to maximize my potential in life.

I will an author as I will soon be publishing a cook book and personal poetry (Angry Scorpio).  My ultimate goal is to become the first black NFL majority owner.

WHAT I PROVIDE

Life lessons and motivation from everyday human being perspective along with tools for self improvement.  We can control more in our lives than we give ourselves credit for.
