Born and raised in Lomé, Togo, my family and I moved to Brooklyn, NY in the cold month of March 2006 to join my father who left two years prior to us arriving. I went to the International High School at Prospect Heights where I landed a full Seinfeld scholarship (Ask me about it!!) to any school of my choosing. I chose the University of VT because of the atmosphere and how calm and clean the city of Burlington was when I visited. I graduated with a Film & Television degree and was working for Delta Airlines where I met a VTANG Fighter Pilot that challenged me to join. Needless to say, I was going to win that challenge and I enlisted in 2015 as a tactical aircraft maintainer (crew chief for short).

My chief challenged me to become a recruiter in 2018 and I can honestly say it is the most rewarding and difficult job I've ever done; and I wouldn't change it for the world. My career with the Airlines in on hold while I invest my time into helping those who have the desire to serve, achieve their goal. We all have a story; don't hesitate to ask me mine. Life is now.
