My childhood was filled with a lot of traveling. Although I was born in Boston, Massachusetts, I grew up in Brooklyn, New York. Upon my elementary school career, my family, of African descent, returned to Nigeria, West Africa,where I completed elementary school, junior high, and senior high before returning back to Brooklyn, New York.
In the fall of 1998, I joined the United States Navy where I served on numerous expeditions. After my successful tour in the Navy, I moved to the Midwest and attended the University of Wisconsin – River Falls. In the fall of 2004, I moved back to San Diego and transferred to San Diego City College. While I was pursuing my Associates degree, I got accepted into California State University – San Marcos. I graduated with both my Associates and my Bachelors in the summer of 2006 with my focus in psychology. In the spring of 2010, I completed my Masters in Psychology with an emphasis in Crisis Management and Response from Walden University.
My interests are listening to music, coaching soccer, exercising, dancing, reading, hiking, baking, cooking, and spending time with my lovely wife, our two amazing children, Yankee (our dog), and our ‘wannabe dog’ cat, Diesel.
