Grew up in El Paso, Tx and spent most of my life playing basketball. Eventually made my way to Houston, Tx to attend the University of Houston where I graduated with a degree in Engineering Technology with a focus in Construction Management. Now I build rail systems for a living, currently in Detroit, MI and I Crossfit on my free time. My goal is to be a part of a regional team in 2015 and to be an individual regional athlete by the time I'm 30.
