A resident of Metairie for the last 10 years, I began my early life on the Westbank. At 17, I graduated from Brother Martin High School. A year removed from Hurricane Katrina at that point in life, I became familiar with overcoming obstacles on new levels: facing the challenges of juggling athletic goals (football/wrestling) and academic goals – attending class starting from 330-930pm. After graduation, I pursued an opportunity to wrestle for Northern Illinois University and studied Business.
Real estate has always been a big part of my family’s lives. When I was a kid my grandfather was a contractor and my parents have owned several residential/commercial properties for most of my life. It’s safe to say we believe in real estate being the safest, most fun, and most rewarding investment opportunities. This notion is what drives me to want to carve my own path in the world of real estate, not only as an agent but also as a property owner – pursuing exciting new challenges and goals on a daily basis.
My professional life began with a heavy background in sales in such industries as: staffing services, magazine/website advertisements, heavy construction, oil & gas, wire rope distribution/fabrication, and was a part-time wrestling coach from 2012-2021. I had the pleasure of being on the staff of 7 State Championship teams throughout my career as a coach and value such things as competitive drives, work ethic, and understanding what it means to “win”. Also, I hold a position (currently) on the Board of Directors for the Karen T. Stall Research + Breast Institute, as well as the Board of Directors for USA Wrestling (Louisiana).
With as much experience, knowledge, and pleasure that I had in other industries, I have found that nothing is as exciting for me as being a Realtor. What I enjoy most is being in the driver’s seat to control my own destiny for success. High volumes of work provide an accomplished feeling upon execution and this career path can supplement you with as much as you can handle. In situations where it is up to me to determine what my ceiling for success is, I tend to come out on top – seeking to accomplish the goals I have set in place.
