Born in Kingston, Jamaica, my family moved to Brooklyn, NY for a better life. Eventually, that led to us relocating to Orlando, Fl, where I consider my hometown away from home. I joined the World’s Finest Navy and embraced all of the experiences that came with it. Different countries, lifelong friends, and even flying a plane or two.

After 3 tours in the Navy, 4 years in Afghani dust, and 43 states, I now reside in the Tampa Bay area.
