Born and raised in the metro Detroit area and attended high school at Anchor Bay High School. Following high school, was awarded a full-ride scholarship to Michigan State University where I played football for four years (2011-15) including in the legendary Rose Bowl Championship game. After leaving Michigan State, I was fortunate enough to play in the NFL for the New York Jets for a few seasons. Playing football has always been my dream but I have always had this passion to help others and give back to others. I have been blessed and fortunate my whole life so I want to do all I can to bless others.
