I grew up learning about hard work and values from my parents. My father spent 20 years in the Air Force, and I would see his comittment that he put forth every single day in a job well done. He taught me that if you're going to do something, you might as well do it right the first time around. We moved around every 2-3 years, so I was forced to hone my personal skills of making friends and being kind to people throughout my early life, and it has paid off with the great people that I am surrounded with. With that I started early by getting a paper route, in order to feel successful, and since it seemed a natuaral fit for me. I worked 365 days a year from 5th grade to 11th grade. 7 years is a lot of time to learn who you are and who you want to become. After graduating High school, I joined the Marine Corps, where I worked not only as a Marine, but a financial analyst for 4 years. My training in accounting is where I learned how to budget and balance financial spreadsheets. After leaving the Marines Corps, I went to work for a couple of tour companies for 7 years, where I learned how to make sure the customer had a safe and fun time touring Mexico, Canada, or destinations in the United States. I am an honest hardworking person that has the ability to operate and run a successful team of like-minded people to acheive a common goal. This project that I have decided to pursue, is one that has been on my mind for close to 10 years. I have considered other cities for this project, but Baltimore stands out, simply for the fact that it is a city of over 650,000 people, with no pedicabs to speak of. I want to make a difference in helping to transform Baltimore into a wonderful tourist destination. By this fall, I will have my bachelors degree in Business management with an emphasis in Entrepreneurship, from the Merrick school of Business at the University of Baltimore. Im excited to bring Baltimore a green way to get around and tour the city.
