"Longwinded, running through this life like it was mine. Never settling, but setting every goal high. One thousand burpees on the path to my own destruction or success, but what is a mistake without the lesson? See, the best teacher in life is your own experience. None of us know who we are until we FAIL. They say every man is defined by his reaction to any given situation; well, who would you want to define you? Someone else or yourself? Whatever you do, give your heart to it and stay strong."
What motivates you to be at Vertus? (what is your “why?")
I am honored to have the opportunity to equip these young men with the tools necessary to navigate these Americas.
Who are you outside of Vertus?
I am a winner, I am a thinker, and I am a motivator. I am a graduate of the University at Buffalo currently pursuing MS. Ed with a concentration in Secondary Science. I have ties to the sports community through my referee affiliation. I am advocate for the less fortunate, but I do not enable. When you expect the best, you get the best.
What is your motivational message for students, current or future?
Work smarter not harder...Understand nothing will be given to you...Teamwork makes the dream work.
