Spent most of my life in Bridgeport, CT. I’m the oldest of 5 kids. Growing up, I worked with my stepfather building and renovating house for his boss on weekends and summer breaks. I attended a technical high school where I was able to study hairdressing and barbering. During school hours I would do haircuts and makes some cash. Soon after I started the program, I landed a job at a barbershop. I did that for three years. Then I joined the Marines and served 14 years on active duty. During my time in the Marines I invested in real estate and started a construction company. After some negative experiences with the political aspect of being a Marine Officer, I realized it was time for me to do with I love full-time. After transferring into the Reserves, I turned KingWood Capital from part-time to full-time! It’s been a difficult journey, but I have learned so much and I learn something everyday. I’m excited share a deeper view into my journey on your show.
