Prior to moving to Atlanta with my wife, I worked with kids as a youth minister. While this was rewarding, I wanted a career working with young people in a different capacity.
I was born and raised in Atlanta and attended several urban schools. Even though I struggled as a student, I had a great experience. After returning home from college, I spent a couple of years working as a barista, medical assistant and a nanny.
Before becoming a teacher, I worked in public relations for 2.5 years for the City of Atlanta’s Housing Office and Turner Enterprises.
