Personal History:

I was born in Pine Bluff, Arkansas. One of the most rewarding things that I have done was to live and work in an African village as part of a Peace Corp project called Operation Crossroads. As a college student living and working in a very rural area for two months taught me a lot about team work and how to finish tough jobs.

Honors and Achievements:

  • Recognized on Capitol Hill in Washington for work done as a tutor for homeless children
  • Recognized by Care International, Inc . for work done as a diplomat in helping to release a hostage being held in Ethiopia.
  • Lettered in basketball at UCLA
  • Coaching my sons in basketball
