Life & Hobbies
“I was born and raised in Atlanta, GA but come from a family with origins in Jamaica, West Indies. Growing up in a Caribbean household helped me gain an appreciation for and love of traveling and experiencing different cultures. Living life to its fullest has always been my ambition. In my downtime, I enjoy painting, playing my guitar, playing basketball, traveling/experiencing new places, and eating good food. Above all else, I enjoy spending quality time filled with laughs around my very close-knit family and friends.”
