My road in life took a while to figure out.
Grew up outside of Richmond, VA, in a suburb that was predominately white—says as a kid he knew he was different, but that it wasn’t really an issue.
His older brother passed away very suddenly from meningitis when they were teenagers.
After his brother died and he saw the impact he’d made on everyone's life, it made him believe that an individual could make a difference in the world.
In college, he was an accounting major with a pre-law focus and intended on going to law school, but quickly realized that he wasn’t passionate about it.
He did an internship at the Federal Reserve Bank of Richmond, which introduced him to communications and aspects of human resources.
During the financial crisis, he worked two eight-hour jobs back-to-back to make ends meet and gain experience.
Got the opportunity to build out the campus recruiting program for the Federal Reserve Bank—says that connecting people and helping them realize their dreams is his purpose in life.
He is a passionate advocate for diversity and inclusion and now leads the global talent acquisition team at Spotify, working to showcase the power one individual can make.
