More About me
I was made in Jamaica 🇯🇲 and came of age in the United States 🇺🇸 .
I migrated from Kingston, Jamaica to Miami, Florida after graduating high school. I am the son of a renowned chef, florist, restaurateur, artist and creative genius. I'd like to believe my creative wiring is a chip off the old block… and I know my entrepreneurial wiring comes from those experiences growing up.
I'm a graduate of Miami-Dade College and the University of South Florida (Go Bulls!). I lived in Tampa Florida for more than a decade before meeting my wife and moving to the Washington DC metro area.
My Reasons Why
I was raised in Kingston, Jamaica, in a big Christian family. My dad is one of 12 kids, and my mom one of 7. I have two younger siblings, but over 50 first cousins on my dad’s side alone.
Today, I am a proud husband of 15+ years to Kristin and strive daily to be the #bestdadever to our two crumbsnatchers (our 13 yo daughter and 9 yo son). I live in Maryland's hill country outside of Washington DC.
