Broke… That is what I would call myself as I reflect back on all of the collectors items I had when I was a kid. From Ninja Turtles to Power Rangers and Transformers, I had a well kept collection of toys and memorabilia that I treasured. I was born in Louisiana but was quickly swept up on the “military brat plane” and landed in Honolulu, HI. It was there that my love for the outdoors was cultivated, so much so, that sitting outside during tropical storms was a pastime!

I am currently the Behavioral Health Manager here at Higher Ground. Meaning, I act as a liaison between our program and behavioral health agencies. I communicate the progress of students in our program and work with agencies to identify potential needs in order to assist in establishing goals for the individuals we serve.

Outside of work, I am married to my high school sweetheart and enjoy growing as a husband. I have grown into playing video games and would like to become a contributor in professional settings. I enjoy learning, whether that be through technology, reading or engaging with people. Gaining new perspectives is something that is ingrained in me. Higher Ground has cultivated my love for serving others and through our program, I have the opportunity to do what I love everyday!
