I was born in 1969 on Long Island, New York, USA.
From a very young age, I have been very interested in technology, science, engineering, and mathematics.
At the age of 11, my mother moved my sister and I to San Antonio, Texas. There, I was a member of the Northwest Hills Baptist Church in the early 80s, and Temple Baptist Church in the mid 80s. I attended Patrick M. Neff Middle School, John Marshall High School, and graduated from Temple Baptist Christian School.
After graduation, I joined the US Army and become a Unit Supply Specialist and Unit Armorer for HHC, 326th Engineer Battalion, 101st Airborne Division, Fort Campbell, Kentucky in 1986-1990
After discharge, I worked briefly at Pergament Home Centers in their Centerreach and Bay Shore stores.
Since 1990, I've worked for an international nutraceutical company on Long Island. I've worked as a picker/checker, stock person, machine operator, and currently I'm a warehouse supervisor.
