What to Expect
A gripping tale of how substance abuse can affect the most promising of our youth.
I am a former two sport standout athlete in both football and lacrosse. I was an All-County performer in both and starred in both sports at the collegiate level. As well as becoming a member of the Rochester Greywolves professional lacrosse team. Through it all I struggled with substance abuse, eventually landing me in Prison for My Second DWI. My substance abuse finally left me homeless and panhandling in the streets of Syracuse. I now travel to High Schools, Colleges, and other youth organizations and share my story of addiction, and how I recovered. My story shows us all that miracles are possible. That there is nothing in this world that cannot be conquered by the human spirit. Most of all my message is to love and believe in yourself and to never ever give up on yourself.
