I was diagnosed with young onset Parkinson’s nine years ago at age 33. It absolutely rocked my world. As a father to young kiddos and as a mobile DJ, it took a lot of adjustments to navigate daily life. Today, I work hard to live better and notice what helps and what doesn’t.

Living well with Parkinson’s means staying active and healthy to be the best version of you that you can be. I have friends who are active Ambassadors with the Foundation, and they invited me to join. I’m excited for the opportunity to work with others in the Foundation as we help educate those in need about Parkinson’s—and one day find a cure.

I love spending time with my family. I have been a mobile DJ for weddings and events now for 24 years. I have served in a few political positions and love advocating for my passions. A perfect Sunday to me is attending church and watching football the rest of the day.
