I grew up in Mt. Vernon, Indiana. A town just across the Illinois/Indiana border. At 18, I committed to play basketball at Division 2 McKendree University, and little did I know that one decision would impact the rest of my life.

During my Junior season I learned of an opportunity to start a full-time career while going to school and playing college basketball. This allowed me a jumpstart at a young age to build a successful and impactful business that I am lucky to have.

My wife, Danielle, and I got married on May 14, 2017. As we recently celebrated our 1st year of marriage, I am reminded daily of how lucky I am to have married my best friend. The love and support she gives me daily is what I believe it is all about. Together we enjoy working out, taking our dog Riley on walks, and traveling to new places. Currently we live in O’Fallon, IL. Danielle is attending St. Louis University in the fall, studying to become a Registered Dietician.
