I started off at UNI-FAB, an iron and metal company when I was in eleventh grade. I was lead to this job by the counselors at my school, who suggested it to help pay for my school tuition. It mostly consisted of metal cutting and spot welding. Once I graduated High School I was fortunate enough to have my pick between the seven scholarships I earned. I ended up choosing to go to Texas Southern University, in Houston. There
I majored in Law enforcement. I spent three years studying and during the first year I also took on a job at the local post office as a mail carrier. During my first year I belonged to a fraternity, KAPPA KAPPA PSI. On top of all of that, I was also in ROTC! It's in the ROTC where I first started studying Tae Kwon Doa. In the midst of my academics, I decided to turn my focus on my government position, as a postal worker.
"I think the whole world is dying to hear someone say, 'I love you.' I think that if I can leave the legacy of love and passion in the world, then I think I've done my job in a world that's getting colder and colder by the day." - Lionel Richie
Shortly, after I moved to Phoenix, AZ and worked at the federal building doing taxes. From there I moved to Sheboygan, WI. I worked as a dye caster for 9 years, until they downsized. Being an avid member of my church led me to move to Fond du Lac. I began working as a welder and worked there until 2012. After a major surgery I consulted with a temp agency to find work, and that's how I came to Interior Systems, Inc.
