Why do you love FSU?

I love FSU because of the opportunities available to any and every student who wants to leave a good name and receive their education. FSU provided the perfect community and network I needed to excel throughout my tenure. The professors and staff were very friendly, and they loved working with me as a student.

Why do you give back (time, talent and/or treasure) to FSU?

When it comes to giving, it’s important to be motivated by something, and that motivation for me was my love for Jesus Christ. I give my time, talent and treasure to FSU because it’s all about leaving a deposit in the earth for the next generation. When arriving at FSU in fall of ’09, the first priority was to receive an education in my major of business administration with a concentration in small business/entrepreneurship and marketing, but also to leave a good name and invest in the next generation. Time is the most valuable asset that we have to give, and time can be spent in a variety of ways. One of the best experiences at Frostburg was serving as president of the Entrepreneurship Club, and I can honestly say that giving of my talent (leadership skills, service and creativity) added value to the College of Business. Lastly, I give my treasure year after year to this wonderful institution because of its character and heart to educate the students.

What do you do for fun?

I enjoy serving my church (From the Heart Church Ministries) throughout the week and engaging in outdoor sports/fitness in all forms, ranging from baseball, basketball, running and exercising. And if I’m not serving in my church or engaging in sports, building businesses is another fun aspect of my life.

Favorite movie/music

Movie: Anything Marvel! For the most part, I love good action movies with suspense and thrills. Music: I enjoy listening to gospel music and instrumental jazz when it comes to working throughout the day.

What is your favorite memory of your time as a Frostburg student?

Wow! Many, many memories to recall at Frostburg; however, one of most touching memories occurred when the entire campus came together in front of the cafeteria to honor a beloved student named Brandon Carroll who passed away. He was active in the Fellowship of Christian Athletes ministry, and when the campus students stood together outside of the cafeteria during my freshman year, that moment showed one of the best times of unity in history. I was given the opportunity to render prayer during that ceremony and never will forget the presence of God at that moment.

What is a cause dear to your heart?

The Student Business Leaders Council (SBLC) Scholarship is very dear to my heart because this committee has impacted many lives in a short amount of time. This scholarship helps students pursue their education in the College of Business and the SBLC Committee is bar none the BEST COMMITTEE at Frostburg! The togetherness, compassion and work ethic within this organization is outstanding, and giving to this organization every year is an honor.

Favorite comfort food?

This is tough because of being a foodie; however, the winner is seafood as my go-to comfort food – crabs, shrimp, fish and oysters. By living in the DMV all of my life, I have enjoyed the best seafood on earth.

Favorite vacation spot?

Cancun, Mexico, and Bora Bora, located in the French Polynesia region, are my vacation spots because of the amazing water, relaxing environment, good weather and good food.

Who is your Doppelganger (famous person you resemble)?

Omari Hardwick. Everyone and anyone that sees me in the neighborhood – gas station, grocery store; you name the location, it has happened – stops me and asks me: (1) Do you know that you resemble “that guy” from the HBO show Power, or (2) Are you Ghost from Power? It never fails – haha – and now when people give me a certain look in their eye as they approach me, before saying, “You know who you look like?” in my mind I’m thinking, “Uh-oh, here it comes.” We all have a twin somewhere on earth.

What profession other than your own would you like to attempt?

It would have to be either a play-by-play sports commentator or ESPN analyst because of knowing certain sports and players and stats like the back of my hand. Anything in the broadcasting space would be ideal because of the excitement of having an audience to entertain with highlights of the day.
