A Glimpse Into My Life...
What a cute kid! Wow, do you see any resemblance here?! That's me as a little guy!
... and yeah, I like to gamble!
My cat, Harvey, and view from my old apartment on State Street!
I live in sunny Fort Lauderdale, Florida
Where we're always having fun in the sun!
A lot of people assume that since I get court-side bulls tickets I'm a sports fan...
...however, not the case at all! I have little to no interest in sports outside of the UFC or actually playing them!
I did grow up playing sports, and I was best at wrestling!
I gained amazing corporate experience living 6 years in Chicago, Illinois.
I was born and raised in Columbia, South Carolina until the age of 12 where I then moved to Velburg, Germany until I graduated high school. Growing up I was very much into console gaming and everything the internet had to offer, especially when in came to online multi-player gaming.
Once I left Germany, I didn't know what I wanted to do so I joined the United States Army as a Vehicle Mechanic. Since I was in the South Carolina National Guard, it was part time, so while I was in the service I attended The Citadel in Charleston South Carolina to receive my college degree in Business.
Upon graduation, I started work in Columbia but then almost immediately moved to Chicago, IL where I lived from 2012 until last September in 2019. Now I live in sunny Florida, but fortunately I still get to go back to Chicago often enough for work and usually try and plan it so I go back when it's nice and warm!
I'm currently working remote these days and enjoying all the time I can with my little toddler. I am very fortunate in life and excited to make my first introduction post...
