Hey y’all. I am a good southern guy with a flare for uniqueness and just a dash of sass. Now some of my chosen family and friends may say more than a dash of sass – but I digress.
I was born and raised in a little furniture manufacturing town called Bassett, VA.
I started my adult life thinking I would serve as a designated sniper for the US Army; but destiny had other plans for me. So I decided to shift my focus after high school to "numbers".
I attended and graduated NC A&T State University (HBCU) and majored in Finance with a minor in Applied Music. Yes – I am a musician. I studied wind instruments and piano/organ. That was a natural fit for me since I had played piano and organ in my hometown church and other surrounding churches since I was 10 years old.
After I graduated, I met a great life-long friend (Ritchie Roark) and moved to a quaint little town in the mountains of NC called Boone. This is where I met my forever chosen family. One of the first people I met at a little basement party was Anthony Wilson. We became instant close friends and I consider him my closest chosen family.
Over the years, I dabbled in hotel management, event management, catering and settled in on Real Estate and property management. This is where I found my groove as they say.
Over the last 5 years, Anthony and I have talked about many business ventures and attempted several in the early days. It wasn’t our time then. But honey – right here, right now - it is OUR time! This is one of the reasons we started this company. This company is grounded in LOVE and PROSPERITY.
At Our Pride Life, we are here 4 YOU, 4 ME, 4 US. Get into this GIG.
