I was born and raised in Boston, MA. When i was a teenager my family moved to South Mississippi in 2000, where I finished schooling and proudly joined the U.S. Army. There I served in the motor pool and worked as a wheeled vehicle mechanic, and vehicle recovery specialist. After getting out of the service I became a ASE certified mechanic, while working as a mechanic I received my Bachelor's degree in Business Management. I joined Gulf Coast Outdoor World in 2017 in the Lawn and Garden Department, and moved to the Automotive department in 2018.
