My favorite memory from working at BBBSCI is ... helping staff for a game night with our matches. Seeing the impact and the matches come to BBBSCI office and have fun in friendly competition while listening to music and eating great pizza made my heart smile.

What I love most about my job is … the interactions and connections I make every day in the office whether it is from a colleague or a guest that comes inside the building. It is the little moments I have with people that takes my position to another level personally for me.

How has mentoring played a role in your life? Mentoring has played a fundamental part of my life because it opens more avenues for someone to explore. Having a mentor stands in its own light and can look different from mentor to mentor. This has made an impact in my life because I’ve had different mentors for different things in my life which is continuously helping me grow into the man I am meant to be.When I’m not at work, you can find me typically at home relaxing while either binge watching something on Netflix or reading. Family is important too, so I am often spending time with family.

What is your favorite spot(s) in Indy? My favorite spot in Indy is my church Mt. Olive Missionary Baptist Church. It always feels like home and I also leave feeling amazing.
