My Why Story

I’m originally from Philadelphia, PA. Attended George Washington Carver of Engineering & Science High School. After High School, I enlisted in the United States Air Force! Worked as an Information Technology Specialist for 4 years in San Antonio, Biloxi & Albuquerque. Also, I was selected to participate in the All Air Force Basketball team in 2006 & 2007. After that experience I received a full ride athletic scholarship to the University of New Mexico Highlands. I played all 4 years & served as a team Captain for 2 years.

After my College Basketball Career, myself & my family moved too Gilbert AZ. I currently work as the Marketing & Sales Director for Magic Pest Control. This will be my 3rd year with San Tan Charter School. So far it has been an unbelievable experience Coaching & Teaching! I’ve found success, great friends & family. I’m excited for the new developments & journey ahead! Go Roadrunners!
