I grew up in the very small town of Clymer, NY and graduated with my regents diploma in 2001. I attended a Microsoft training course at the Jamestown Community College called Success Inc. where I received my Microsoft specialist certifications for Word, Excel, Access, and Powerpoint. Before joining the Army, and serving for quite a few years, I held positions of increasing responsibility in various industries. Due to a combat related accident I was medically separated from the service and decided it was time to further my education. I attended Erie Business Center in Erie, PA where I graduated Summa Cum Laude with an associates degree in Marketing Management. Within two weeks of graduation my wife and I moved down to Orlando, Florida so I could attend Full Sail University and start working on my Bachelors of Science in Entertainment Business. As of late I finished my Undergrad also earning Salutatorian on November 1st 2013. On November 25th 2013 I started working on my Masters of Entertainment Business Degree also at Full Sail University. My expected graduation date is December 1st 2014.
