My road in life took a while to figure out.
Born and raised in Atlanta, GA.
Grew up in a rough neighborhood and in an abusive home—fell into a life of selling drugs and admits that he spent most of his early life trying to figure out who he was.
When he was 15, he was arrested and charged with a misdemeanor.
Moved to Minnesota to turn his life around and won a basketball scholarship to Bemidji State University.
After graduation, began working as a sales manager for 43 Hoops Basketball Academy and helped it grow into a company worth over $1 million in its first year.
While working there, met one of his mentors, the CEO of a Fortune 500 company, who began coaching him in business and helping him build his confidence.
Admits that he struggled in his early entrepreneurial years with mental health issues, financial disappointments, and racial discrimination within the tech industry.
In 2015, started his company, Upsie, which developed an innovative way of selling extended warranties for electronics and now has over $2 million in funding behind it.
