Shortly thereafter, my mom allowed me to sing with her in her quartet group. I continued to enhance my skills as both a musician and singer through playing for various churches in the Houston area. Read more>>

I love adversity because it pushes me to work harder in every aspect of my life. I love to challenge myself, however anyone that knows me, personally knows that I’m a total carefree goofball and I love to have fun. Read more>>

My dad was a director for theater across Houston, but I went a different route into filming and editing. My dad always put the idea in me to be whatever I want but to be the best whatever I do. I was self-taught and had the motivation to become the best. Read more>>

In 2010, I started bringing cheesecakes to work functions and after about five or more times, they said every time I make a cheesecake, they’ll pay for it. That sparked the idea of selling them. After trying cheesecake factory red velvet, I knew I could make a cake like that. From that point on, Sweet Tooth Cheesecakes became more than an idea. Read more>>

When I was in high school, I started The Junior Mentor League which I helped middle schooler and high schoolers with their homework and dealt with the daily stresses of school life. By the time I finished undergrad, I had housed and taken care of three runaways and/or abandoned kids.
