By: Staff


Q: What’s your occupation? Explain your career, your accomplishments and professional highlights.

A: I am a marketing consultant, real estate investor and owner of the seven-figure agency, Growth Marketing Media. I also serve on the board as the president of a nonprofit called Recovered On Purpose. Our mission is to equip and empower addicts in their recovery and share their stories with those suffering as well as help addicts recover and share stories in the school system to deter future generations from going down the path of addiction.

Q: Tell us about yourself, your history and how you came to be where you are now.

A: I struggled with drug addiction for over a decade. This led me to being arrested when I was just 14 years old. After experiencing my 10th drug overdose, which I was hospitalized for, I decided to make a change. In just five years, I built a life I am proud of. I have a beautiful wife and son, and I am currently working on my first book to tell this story. I also founded a highly successful and quickly growing digital marketing agency called Growth Marketing Media.


Age: 29 

Occupation: Owner and founder of
Growth Marketing Media


Q: Tell us something unique about you.

A: Music is something I am very passionate about, but at the moment, I am dedicating my focus to my family, my church, my business, investing and the nonprofit I serve on the board of. However, I have created several music videos.

Q: What do you consider your biggest accomplishment, either professionally or personally?

A: Overcoming drug addiction. Heroin and other opiates are extremely hard to overcome. The reason for this is because it is not just a mental dependency, it is a physical dependency too. If I had not overcome my addiction to heroin, I would not be in the position I am today.

Q: Where do you see yourself in five years? In 10 years?

A: In five years I see myself being an incredible father/husband and a best-selling author, speaking on stages and sharing my story with thousands of people. My hope is that I can help people struggling with addiction as well as their families. I’d also like to be an eight-figure business owner. In 10 years, I have similar hopes but with a much higher magnitude and impact. “People overestimate what they can do in one year and underestimate what they can do in 10 years.”

Q: What piece(s) of advice would you give to your younger self?

A: Think big and work hard for your goals and dreams. Do not let anyone who has disbelief control the actions that you take in your life. Often, they gave up on their own dreams. Everything you go through in life truly does make you stronger, so embrace adversity. On the other side of pain, you will find your purpose. Do not try and avoid pain; face it head on. God is for you.

Q: What, specifically, led you to a successful turning point in your addiction after 10 overdoses?

A: I woke up one day and realized that if I did not change my life and quit, I would end up either in prison or dead. After meeting the girl who would become my wife, I realized how badly I wanted to have a family and leave a positive legacy. God truly brought her into my life at the most perfect time. This is still what drives me to this day.

Q: What has been the secret to your business success?

A: My secret is perseverance, though I would not consider myself to be fully successful yet. I do not take no for an answer. If a door is not there, I will build one or find a window. It’s not just about showing up on the good days; I show up even when I do not feel like it. This is necessary to achieve high levels of success as an entrepreneur. Another important piece is leveling up your mindset and beliefs, and the best way to do that is by surrounding yourself with other people who are more successful than you are. If you are the smartest person in the room, you are in the wrong room.
