He attended Independence high School where he graduated with honors and followed his associate’s degree in Business at the Corozal Junior College, where he excelled. He was the membership officer and book keeper at the Placencia Tourism Center and then moved into real estate with a local realtor. After 3 years in the real estate scene, he decided to go back to San Pedro, where he worked as the Inventory and Asset Controller for Grand Belizean Estates.
