I’m currently and hope to forever dwell in Nirvana on Earth.
On a personal note
I am a Christian, Birmingham, Alabama native, twin and proud Charlotte Hornets fan. I also enjoy reading GQ magazine, watching Food Network chefs prepare meals I couldn’t possibly make myself, “thinking of you” moments and listening to spoken word poetry.
I consider myself a “pass-first” point guard, both on the basketball court and in the business world. I enjoy assisting and empowering others to reach a common goal. I strive to be the ultimate TEAMmate, both for the people I lead and the mentees I serve.
Here’s a list of a few of my favorite things:
- Verse: James 1:2-4
- Color: Red – has been ever since I was six years old and dreamed of being a Red Power Ranger
- Poem : Robert Frost’s “The Road Not Taken.” I affectionately blame my high school teacher, Ms. Linda Rainer, and her Honors English 11 class for the inspiration
- Athlete: Past = Michael Jordan; Present = LeBron James
- Movie: Love and Basketball
- Guilty Pleasure: Sour Gummy Worms
- Sports Teams: Vestavia Hills High School Rebels; UNC Tar Heels, Charlotte Hornets, any Spanish soccer team
- Sports Memory: Watching the Spanish National Team compete in World Cup preparation play at Yankee Stadium in New York
- Cities: United States = Charlotte, North Carolina; International = Shanghai, China
- Book: The Defining Decade: Why Your Twenties Matter – And How To Make the Most of Them
- TED Talks:
- Why 30 is Not the New 20 by Meg Jay
- How Great Leaders Inspire Action by Simon Sinek
- The Power of Vulnerability by Brene Brown
- How Schools Kill Creativity by Ken Robinson
- YouTube Video:
