There is little science to determine how someone handles a situation, competition, survival, death or life. I had to survive in poverty and under threat while developing as a young man. My persistence was not always socially accepted, and many had to classify or label me to understand. Often, I had to figure out how to survive with no home, no food. As a young boy, I wanted the Andy/Opie dynamic, but the environments and circumstances controlling my life was void of the transformational leadership qualities I aspired and sought at an early age and into adulthood. I pushed myself to overcome the environments and people whom threatened my existence, my improvement, and my determination. Ultimately, I used sports and education to foster an empowering environment and embolden my efforts. I also used my intuition to guide me.
In the past during my progression I have been recognized and vetted for many opportunities within sport, government, military, law, and education to include the Air Force (medical role), medical school, physical therapy, nurse anesthetist, the American Heart Association, the NFL and the FBI. I chose different routes to improve my myself and others, and my efforts have been recognized while working with a Government and Military Challenge Program for teens and young adults. I also teamed up with University Academic Centers of Excellence, the National Safety Council, the American Red Cross, and the YMCAs, and was selected to the National Leadership Honor Society, I am thankful for each organization and chose a path where I felt I would make the most impact for society.
My mission forms the continuity that drives me today to bring society to a greater level of intelligence and quality of living.
