He went back to college in his thirties to pursue a degree in Leadership Development & Social Entrepreneurship – from UMBC. He is currently pursuing a Master’s degree in Entrepreneurship, Innovation, and Leadership – also from UMBC, and spends his free time with his family exploring, experiencing, experimenting, and educating along the way.
