A couple of important things to know in life is the value of hard work and the meaning of integrity. Growing up I was taught to dream big and to follow my passions. From as far back as I can remember my passion for sports has been in the forefront of my mind. I was fortunate that I was able to play football throughout my adolescent years along with playing lacrosse while attending college at Nicholls State University. Over the years it had become apparent that my favorite part of sports is watching teams come together, work to overcome obstacles and achieve greatness. Since my sports playing days have ended, I decided to focus my passion and love for the game in a slightly different direction. I have collected a lot of sports memorabilia over the years, most of my favorite athletes. I knew that I could combine my knack for collecting, knowledge of sports and its history to attribute something greater than myself. Being able to turn my hobby into a resource to help others has been a true blessing. I may not be wearing a professional jersey but by being able to see the joy on our customer’s faces, I truly have reached the pinnacle of “my game.

I grew up in a middle-class household, my dad being a hardworking, blue-collared man. He instilled in me the importance of being a good person, to help those in need and to be successful you must work hard. Through many struggles and adversities, I have tried to remain true to those statements. I started at the bottom in the working world at a very young age and I am now going into my twentieth year in sales with the same company. I have worked my way up and am currently the Sales Director of over three branches along with helping run day to day operations for the largest rope importing company in the United States. I have also owned a few businesses on the side over the years, lasts of which were a frame shop and art gallery in the French Quarter. After many years in sales, I have learned that networking is key to be a successful salesman, hence how Trey and I met. We came across each other on Facebook, we immediately hit it off and decided to team up with our knowledge of products and sales skills. When owning the frame shop, I was often approached for donations and I have always tried my best to offer any help and/or assistance that I could. Mainly because I have constantly strived to live the “help those in need” way and I firmly believe it’s how I have gotten this far in life and for that I am truly thankful. Thanks Dad.
