My road in life took a while to figure out.
Immigrated to the U.S. from Barbados when he was a child.
Transitioning into the U.S. school system was hard for him—says he was always underestimated, but he had a teacher who supported him and got him back on track.
Growing up, his family was very poor and he couldn’t afford to go to college.
His teacher and people in his community rallied together to raise money to send him to college—this generosity sparked his passion in education and his desire to give back.
Received his bachelor’s degree from Morehouse College, then attended Harvard University, where he received a dual master’s degree in business administration and education.
While at Harvard, he co-founded a tutoring company which later became the Rocket Group, a company that uses technology to improve education and advance the field of online learning.
Worked at McGraw-Hill Education helping to develop adaptive learning programs for students.
He now works for Houghton Mifflin Harcourt as an executive vice president and general manager in charge of the company’s supplemental curriculum portfolio and intervention solutions.
