Colleges attended and degrees earned: American University, B.A. in Visual Media
Where I grew up: Columbia, South Carolina
First person in my family to go to college: My grandfather was the first in my family to go to college, and my father taught at a university for 40 years.
Why I work for CCGI: I work for CCGI because I believe that a college diploma is one of the most powerful tools for social mobility we have. When we have equity in education and opportunity, we can unlock the unlimited potential of California's youth.
Fun fact: I met my wife while working the door of the L.A. branch of Chicago's famous Second City Theater. We continue this love of improvisation every day by raising our four-year-old daughter.
