About Me

I first found out about the CEO program from my friend who took the class last year. It interested me because I wanted to learn more about the business world and how to operate my own business. I also heard that the class offered a more hands on type of learning, which is my favorite learning style.

I am a senior sousaphone player for the Granite City Marching Warriors Band. I also play four additional instruments; trumpet, baritone, piano, and guitar. In the past I was a referee at Bingfield Paintball and Airsoft Park in Alton, Illinois, until my recent diagnosis of type 1 Diabetes. Now I devote my time to working on my ministry and certification as a minister.

After high school I plan on attending Florissant Valley to become an aviation mechanic.






DISC Characteristics

  • I like to take a slower more methodical approach to making decisions.
  • I have a very high trust level for others, but this could actually result in me being "burned."
  • I am always seen as cool, calm, and collected on the outside (whether this is true on the inside or not).
  • I am a very good critical thinker in the problem-solving context.
