To save confusion, I will just write in first person as third person about yourself is just dumb lol
I am from Kansas City, Missouri and graduated from Lafayette High School in 1999. When I was not boxing, wrestling or playing football; I was working on a desktop in the Art department. In fact, one of my first websites was the high school’s original website.
After high school, I served the people of the United States while earning a Bachelors of Art in Graphic Design from the University of Missouri. I finish with a GPa of 3.78 (B+).
After graduation, I went to work for Dell, Inc. in the Philippines as a Database Specialist while I finish a degree from Central Bible College online. I earned a B.A. in Evangelism at CBC.
While living in the Philippines, I earned a Masters of Technology Management from the University of the Philippines and completed a Masters of Philosophy from Oral Roberts University.
After working for Dell for almost 2 years, I left for Smart Communications, the largest mobile provider in the Philippines to be the Chief Creative Officer. At Smart, I oversaw the branding operations of the company and was a lead in the “broadband for every Juan” project to get affordable internet in the hands of every person at a price they could afford.
In 2009, I have a life altering event that caused me to walk away from a career in branding and media development and follow a dream of traveling the world and meeting people of other cultural and geographical understanding.
I spent the next three years criss-crossing the Pacific Islands doing my dream traveling to locations like Olosega in American Samoa; Savusavu, Fiji; Tokelau; and Yap.
It has been the adventure of a lifetime meeting some very amazing (and some not so amazing) people in little islands in the middle of the Pacific Ocean.
Today, I make my home in Suva, Fiji living among local Fijians and drinking lots of kava.
