Suit Up, Show Up, Try my Best.

I have never really been faulted for a lack of effort. In college, I had lavish dreams to conquer Silicon Valley with my Computer Engineering degree.  In real life, I wound up in Opelika, Alabama (lovely small town) caring for 20+ horses and running an equine therapy for kids with special needs. Not exactly Silicon Valley, but vitally important to my professional and personal growth.

Life has a way of delivering unexpected opportunities to grow and develop each day. My focus is greet each new challenge with a smile and diligent effort.

Suit Up. Show Up. Try My Best.

Wash. Rinse. Repeat.
