My road in life has taken me all over.
I was born in Inglewood, California, and started running when I was six years old.
I became very passionate about running and continued with it until I was a freshman in high school—I didn’t get along with the track coach, so I stopped running for many years.
After graduating from college, I didn’t know what I wanted to do, so I decided to go back to school for a graduate degree.
I graduated with my master’s degree and started working for a big multinational corporation—the company saw promise in me, so they sent me to business school for my MBA.
To celebrate my 30th birthday, I decided to run 30 miles.
After rediscovering my love for running, I started running marathons and then ultramarathons.
I kept my day job for safety and security, but I eventually realized that the corporate world just wasn’t for me anymore and I would be happier doing what I loved, which was running.
Since quitting my job, I’ve had a very fulfilling career as a marathon and ultramarathon runner.
Keep following my journey
