As an avid sports fan, if I were to do anything else for a living it would probably be representing athletes as a sports agent. However, I’m able to satisfy that itch in my real life as a volunteer baseball coach for Nansemond River High School, and by coaching and managing a local travel baseball organization that helps to provide resources for young athletes in the community to enhance their academic, athletic and life skills.

Beyond sports, I love to experience new cultures so am naturally interested in traveling anywhere and everywhere. Learning Spanish is on my bucket list, so maybe a trip to Spain or Latin America is in my future! The best place I’ve been yet, though, would have to be the British Virgin Islands. With its pristine beaches and waters, being in such a beautiful and relaxing place brought me so much peace.

Wherever I may travel, the one thing I can’t live without would be my family. They’re the people I love the most and the ones who keep me centered and bring out the best in me.
