A native of Chicago, Illinois, I was born into a middle-class family in the burgeoning Chatham neighborhood. A strong, nurturing family instilled the entrepreneurial spirit, along with compassion and a desire to be great fueled my growth.
I attended Chicago Vocational High School, one of the largest schools on the south side of Chicago, where I was encouraged to launch my first business, JC Works, a computer repair business.
It was after graduating high school, my upward trajectory into the world of corporate America began. I've had the pleasure of working for such notable organizations as Best Buy, AT&T (formerly Ameritech), Comcast, Harbor Group International, Personal Capital, Change Healthcare (formerly Emdeon), Vizient (formerly MedAssets), Coca-Cola Enterprises (now CCEP) and most recently Meta Platforms (formerly Facebook).
Keeping the entrepreneurial spirit, in 2010, I launched South Champlain Company, an homage to the city that I was raised in and the street I called home. South Champlain is a diversified company which focuses on simplifying life through the use of technology while simultaneously encouraging others to live their best life and drive towards success.
