I have lived in Southwest Rochester, New York all my life except for 3 years while serving in the United States Navy. I was fortunate to be a part of the urban-suburban school program where I attended the Brighton School District for K through 12th grade. My urban-suburban experience gave me insight into both urban and suburban life which ignited a desire in me to improve inner city neighborhoods. I have worked with grassroots organizations and the local Rochester city government to establish a better Southwest Neighborhood. One of my best achievements was Presidency over the Jefferson Avenue Business Association whereby I established a youth scholarship fund for college business majors.
