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—I fell into a life of selling drugs and spent most of my early life trying to figure out who I was.
When I was 15, I was arrested and charged with a misdemeanor.
Moved to Minnesota to turn my life around and won a basketball scholarship to Bemidji State University.
After graduation, I 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, I met one of my mentors, the CEO of a Fortune 500 company, who began coaching me in business and helping me build my confidence.
I struggled in my early entrepreneurial years with mental health issues, financial disappointments, and racial discrimination within the tech industry.
In 2015, I started my company, Upsie, where we developed an innovative way of selling extended warranties for electronics and now have over $2 million in funding behind it.
Keep following my journey
