Life provides all of us with challenges.  As a speaker, I enjoy sharing some of the challenges that I have experienced and the lessons that I have learned to help people.  In order to know me, you must understand me.  I am a product of my environment which has conditioned me to become a relentless fighter, a man of steel.  Daily, I work to become a better person and strive towards making my dreams and ambitions become a reality.  I believe there is nothing holding you back in this world except yourself.  My mission is to help those who are struggling by teaching them a process that I have used to defy my obstacles.

Field of Dreams

Baseball Intro


Field of Dreams

 

The "field of dreams" was my second home for several years.  The game still teaches me lessons everyday and probably will for the rest of my life.  It has been a privilege to play with some extremely talented individuals on some very competitive teams.

Baseball Career


Baseball Career


 

Riverside High School baseball has a long history of excellence in Greer, South Carolina.  The team has been nationally ranked several times and won multiple state, district, and region championships.  As a pitcher at Riverside High School, the highlight of my baseball career came on Senior Night.  I threw a complete game two-hit shutout to lead the Warriors to victory.

 

Training

Intense training was the foundation for my success.  In order for me to compete on a high level, I needed to train twice as hard as the competition.  To do this, I designed and developed a weight harness system to implement my weightlifting program.

"You may stop playing the game, but you never stop being a ballplayer."

Family

 

The definition of a family has changed quite a bit, especially in recent years.  I am a strong believer that, no matter what family structure, it is imperative to have strong love and support during the growth of our youth.  If family is not present, surround yourself with people that will contribute to your success.  To my family, friends, and wife: Thank you for being such a special part of my life.

Childhood

Growing up, my parents taught me to never let anything hold me back.  My childhood was filled with the same experiences as any other child.
 

My Better Half

In 2009, I met a beautiful blue-eyed girl named Heather who stole my heart.  Ever since then, things have never been the same.  After several years of dating, we were engaged on the Empire Sate Building in New York City on New Years Eve.  One year later, we were married on a beautiful New Years Eve night in Greenville, SC.  For the woman who saw beyond my flaws, I love you.
