Arlington and the surrounding metropolitan area has always been my home . I was born in Maryland, work in Washington D.C., and Live in Arlington, Virginia. Having been born to an immigrant Father, determination, persistence, and ambition were qualities that surrounded and molded me in my youth. This upbringing lead me to pursue higher education and obtain a B.S., M.S., and P.h. D. in Applied Mathematics, all by the age of 26. Following my educational career, I obtained employment with Navy’s Cost Engineering and Industrial Analysis Division, where I support a major acquisition program as a senior Operations Research Analysts. In 2018 I began to gain experience in the field of Event planning. Given my analytical educational background, and my economic occupation background, finance & logistics have always been areas of proficiency for me, and where I thrive as an event planner with The Polished Kreative. I enjoy the challenge of foreseeing and overcoming obstacles that come with every event we curate for our community; moreover, as a black & gay man living in Virginia, I want be a part of shaping my community to be more diverse, inclusive, and safe for all.
