BiographyBorn and raised in New Castle Delaware, I attended William Penn high school where I participated in JROTC and played Lacrosse. During my high school days I earned three JROTC national awards and two lacrosse honors before graduating and attending the University of Delaware. As a UD student I wrote for my school’s sketch comedy show, and also joined the university’s Tae Kwon Do team, where I earned my black belt and received twenty-one competition medals. During my sophomore and junior years (2010 and 2011) I participated in the Mr. Delaware pageant, winning the “Best Body” competition both years and coming in second place in 2011. I graduated from the University of Delaware in 2013 with a B.A. in psychology and was hired by a mental health facility I interned for while in college.
Not being satisfied with where I was working, I sought out a career in law enforcement. However, I wasn’t considered after applying multiple times due to being a recreational marijuana smoker. I continued working for the mental health facility until I finally parted ways in 2014, and worked for two different temp agencies. In 2016 I parted ways with the temp agencies and began working for Uber and Lyft. While participating in a Spartan race in 2017 I was recruited by a Homeland Security agent, and was hired by Homeland Security in 2018 as a Federal Law Enforcement Officer.
In 2015 I signed a contract with a publishing company named Desert Breeze. I was contracted to have my manuscript “Chaos Company” published by them. Unfortunately in 2017 my contract was terminated due to Desert Breeze closing down. With the rights to my work reverted back to me I decided to self-publish my work in 2017, and published another action/adventure novel titled “Gargoyle” in 2018.
