Born and Raised in Columbus, OH, by my mother and 4 sisters. Then moved to Chicago, IL where I played basketball for South Suburban Community College and met my lovely wife Yana. Was then recruited to Tennessee Technological University where I played for 2yrs and was blessed with my daughter Khamryn Messiah.
After graduation I got a job as a Strength & Conditioning coach at Tennessee Tech where I began crossfit. I started CrossFit by going to Regionals and realized I was terrible , long story short I told my training partner Rich Froning I wanted to be better and whatever you do I’ll do, “Don’t Leave Me Out bro”. In this time I’ve met some great people and incredible crossfitters who have coached me, programmed for me, and I WORKED HARD to get to where I am!
