I was born in Portsmouth, Virginia, and faced numerous trials and tribulations during my upbringing. I grappled with anger, resentment, and confusion as I grew older. Despite these challenges, I worked my way up from a dishwasher to a cook, head cook, and part-time kitchen manager, all while raising my son, whom I had at 20.
At 24, I tragically lost my mother to lung cancer. I was a difficult time in my life being a young father with no support system. Returning to school was a pivotal decision, and in 2021, I graduated from New England Tech with a Bachelor's Degree in Digital Media Production, receiving the prestigious "Best of Tech" award.
My journey in digital media started with an internship at Cardi's Furniture during my Associate's Degree, where I operated the camera and interviewed New England Patriots football players. This opened doors, leading me to a position at JH Communication / Main Street Media in Providence, Rhode Island, where I served as the lead videographer, editor, and FAA-licensed drone pilot. Alongside, I built my own brand, AC Production, taking on various jobs to establish my presence in the industry.
Reflecting on my past experiences, I'm profoundly grateful for the opportunities that have shaped my career, and I'm excited for what the future holds.
