Georgia Tech Alumni - Former Student Athlete 

In May of 2011, I conquered the world. I graduated from Georgia Tech, which for me signified there wasn't anything that I couldn't do. The rigorous academic curriculum would have me up studying for hours on end, but I studied anyway. Some days, I would be mentally exhausted and physically fatigued before going to football practice, but I went anyway. The pressure to get work experience to increase my chances for job opportunities post-graduation was overwhelming, but I worked anyway. I thought about quitting over 1,000 times, but I didn't. Each time I told myself...

Do It Anyway

My experience at Georgia Tech taught me lessons that I would come to value, and appreciate over time. Lessons such as faith, resilience, failure, and perseverance. Tech molded me into the person I have become today. There is no substitute for experience, some things you just have to live to learn.

Sales Account Executive

From Tackles to Tech. I like to believe that I have over 10 years of sales experience, even though my resume may only read 6. I started my own business at the age of 13. I would go door to door, asking the neighbors in my subdivision if I could cut their yards for $20 front and back. Once I got the taste of sales as a kid, I was naturally drawn to continue pursuing it as a career in college. As an intern at ADP, I was given the highly coveted responsibility of cold calling former, unsatisfied customers, who had canceled their contracts. My job was to re-engage with them. Although I felt like it was a suicide mission, I was determined to win back their business. I don't believe I've ever heard the word "no" so many times in my life- but that is the exact reason I succeeded. 

As a Microsoft Cloud Productivity Sales Specialist, I empower brands such as Oakley, Petco, Monster Energy, and others to achieve more. While "sales" is in my job title, I don't ever really sell anything, I help. I help my clients solve their business challenges. I listen and seek to understand their pain points, strategic initiatives, and what they truly care about. This insight enables me to recommend technology solutions that align with their needs. Together, we assess, evaluate, and implement the most favorable success plan. 

At the end of the day... Everyone wants a win-win. And that's what I create.

Keynote Speaker - Modern Day Storyteller  

Neuroscience tells us that stories trigger emotional responses, they inspire people to take action. Our appetite for stories is a reflection of the basic human need to understand patterns of life. Not merely as an intellectual exercise, but rather as a personal and emotional experience. Telling stories is a way to connect with people and share meaning and purpose. Stories are the common ground that allows people to communicate, overcoming our defenses and our differences. Stories allow us to understand ourselves better and to find our commonality with others.

I've been fortunate enough to speak on panels, present at executive briefings, deliver keynotes at conferences, and host youth events. Although the mediums of engagement are different, the same formula applies. I tell stories. Stories that ignite a fire in people to create change. Whether it's a presentation about a new product that I'm pitching to the CIO of one of my clients, or a talk that I'm giving to the Boys and Girls Club of Los Angeles, the power of persuasion lies in storytelling. And storytelling is what I do.
