When and how did you start?
I started in 2008 after dropping out of Clark Atlanta University. Lol...my very first website was a one-paged infinite scroll. Eventually met Rochelle in 2012 and introduced my idea, she laughed at me. She laughed hard. That night I promised myself to make this work, lol and Rochelle was going to be the “test dummy”.
Who all has supported you?
I have a very small circle so my dad and Mother-in-law have been the biggest supporters. I'd be remiss to not acknowledge the city of Corpus Christi. The people of the city and the vibe just hit different. When it comes to local support, I haven't seen anything like Corpus, and I've traveled a lot.
Who or what has inspired or influenced you?
The city of Niagara Falls, NY has been the biggest influence on my life. No matter what you hear about the city, there are some of the most special people that come from and reside there. As far as inspiration to start my journey, none. This is Gods Plan.
My daughter inspires me the most to keep going, and I GO HARD. Shes taught me so much, lol not sure who's the parent sometime. I also get inspired just by seeing people in action. There's nothing like seeing art, business and new ideas.
