As I look back on my life, I realize that the one thing that has helped me fight back against unfavorable conditions has been, stories. An internal positive story, an expectation that things would work out, a belief that a better day was coming. This belief, or internal story, is an unshakable power that nothing can conquer.
For the purpose of letters are words, the purpose of words are stories, and the purpose of stories
Originally from Fresno, California, I was raised by two sets of parents and a no-nonsense grandmother who was full of wisdom and fire that taught me charisma and street-smarts.
After beginning my basketball career as a sophomore in high school, I was granted an opportunity to play at Portland State University on a scholarship from 2002 to 2006.
After graduating, I started a career selling for Fortune 500 & 1000 companies like AT&T, Verizon, Guardian Life Insurance Company of America, & Heartland Payment Systems.
In 2016, I formed the Northwest Advisory Group, a financial services firm that is committed to serving the needs of businesses in the retail, restaurant, and B2B market. Today, we are recognized as a premier brand helping businesses navigate the credit card processing industry.
When I am not working, you can find me at the beach with my wife and son, reading, podcasting, or watching inspirational YouTube videos.
The one thing I’ve learned about life is this: Don’t let your circumstances dictate the outcomes you reach for. You can do anything, regardless of the cards you are dealt.
