Day In The Life Of An Executive Director Of A Pre-Apprenticeship

Milestones

My road in life has been direct.
I’m from Harlem, New York.
After high school, I went to the New York Institute of Technology but didn’t finish.
I left New York City and moved up to Rochester, New York, where I joined the IBEW (International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers).
I became a journeyman wireman and have been working in the field ever since.
When the founder of M.A.P.P. wanted to get more diversity into the trades, he asked me to head those efforts as executive director.
Keep following my journey
