I was born and raised in the greater Houston area and I am a recent graduate of Sam Houston State University. In my youth I played almost every sport (Football, Baseball, Basketball, Soccer, Powerlifting, Tennis, Swimming and Track & Field). However, in high school my focus was on my varsity sports, which were: football, powerlifting and track & field; I played one year of basketball my freshman year. After high school, I became a YMCA camp counselor for outdoor camping, we did activities like: archery, canoeing, zip-lining, and horse back riding. In college, I was a supervisor for our Intramural Sports program, where we were responsible in officiating games in sports like: basketball. football, soccer, volleyball, softball and other competitive events like E-Sports. I was also a part of the TASO officiating organization, where I officiated middle and high school basketball games in Walker County and the nearby surrounding areas. I look forward to meeting everyone and excited for the season!
