Why he loves and volunteers with the Black United Fund:
I volunteer with the Black United Fund not only because it is the right thing to do, but because this is an organization that is doing the right thing. It is much harder to achieve your goal when you are going at it alone. The Black United Fund is a great example of an organization that helps other organizations and collaborates with others to provide valuable resources to those most in need. When I look back on my life I can remembers specific organizations and people that took the time out to help me along the way. Without that guidance, there is no telling where the road of life may have taken me. I am grateful for this and want to do what I can to help someone else.

What you won't find on his resume:
If you were to look at my resume you would not know that the experiences and skills that are listed pale in comparison to the love that I have for my family. My wife is my best friend and we have two beautiful daughters. There is nothing I wouldn't do for them. Hopefully, the things that my resume does show, will play some part in making their life better as they grow up.
