On January 19th, 1986, I was born in the, at the time, booming city of Flint, Michigan. I was my mother's first child and, at the time everything was rough due to her young age and no support from my father. She then met a man whom she later married. After the marriage, he adopted me and in 1990, we moved to California as my father pursued his career in the Army. On May 24th, 1991, my younger brother was born in Fort Irwin, California.
My dad was deployed to Germany in 1993, which is when my we moved to Las Vegas for a few months until later going to Germany to be with my dad. After 6 long months, my parents divorced and my mother, brother, and I moved to North Carolina where we had some friends in the area. After living in Beaufort, North Carolina until my 5th grade summer, we decided as a family to move back up to Michigan where our family was still located.
In my first year of school in Michigan, I attended Bentley Middle School located in Burton, Michigan. After about a semester there, I decided that it was not a good school for my interests nor did it meet any expectations academically; therefore I transferred to my mother's alma matar, Kearsley High School.
After a few weeks of learning the school and the students, I realized it was the perfect fit. Kearsley High School is where I participated in both basketball and baseball from 7th-12th grade. As a member of the 2003-2004 Varsity Basketball team, I served as a captain with 3 other seniors (Manningham, Galvas, Fetters). We ended up taking a broken program that did not win a single game our junior year to winning 5 in 2003-2004. It may not seem like a big turnaround (+5), but when your program is in the dumps and you play in one of the top conferences in the entire country, it is difficult for people to understand how difficult wins can be in the conference. Even our out-of-conference schedule was tough; therefore there was a good chance the season could have resulted in winning 0 games once again.
Following my high school athletic career, my options were that of most 18 year old young men graduating high school. I could either stay home and go to community college, go away to college, or I could find a job and work. My option was to stay home with my family. At the time, it was difficult to make ends meet and I was not mature enough to handle life on my own away from home. I stayed home and attended Mott Community College full time for 2 years while working in the Informational Technology department.
After my two years at MCC were finished, I continued my education at Grand Valley State University, located in Allendale, Michigan. After 2.5 years at GVSU, I graduated in December of 2008 with a Bachelor of Science in Behavioral Science with an emphasis in Psychology/Sociology. My goal was to graduate college with a 4-year degree, but with the economy being as terrible as it was and still is today, there was no way I could step into the workforce and find a full-time job; therefore graduate school was my other option.
It is a bit pricey, and risky due to the interest rates of loans, but to do something I loved and have the education to back it up (coaching or being part of a sports organization), I had to earn a master's degree. With all that had happened in my life, I knew the one thing I was sure about was a career in sports. Never did I receive much guidance, so research and dedication is what pulled through and at the end of my journey of education, I hope to find a position within a college/university/organization that values my skills and dedication as an employee and individual.
