I want to start off by saying that I am eternally grateful for the opportunity to be of service to the young men that have come through our program and those that will come in the future. I honestly believe I was given one more shot at life, solely to give back what I have learned in my recovery journey. My drug of choice was intravenous heroin and my sobriety date is December 19, 2016. I am the oldest of three siblings and the son to my loving, compassionate parents. I put my family through a living hell for five years before I finally came to a program similar to Otter House Recovery, where I grasped and was able to maintain my sobriety that I hold dearly to this day. I have attended the most prestigious treatment programs that money can buy, as well as the worst of the worst. I’ve seen it all, top to bottom. What I can tell you is that the connection with a similar demographic of young men; a parallel upbringing, and a relatable connection with the staff made all the difference in the world to me. I have a very personal connection with all of the guys in our program as well as maintaining a friendship with them after they graduate.
I have a very wide range of hobbies and interest, which allows me to be able to connect with so many different personality types. Example: I played every sport under the sun growing up, and enjoy weight training. I played piano for ten years as a child. I now produce and record modern hip-hop and alternative music (The guys at the program have access to my studio to record and learn at any time). I play videogames and enjoy board games as well. I am an avid movie lover (Partly why I added a stadium-seated, dedicated movie theater room to the house). If there is a hike to go on, I will be there. I love animals and have a fur son of my own, Snoop (This is partly why I’ve allowed clients to have their dogs at the program). If you made it this far reading my bio, I sincerely wish you or your loved one the very best on the road to recovery. It is possible, if I can do it, you can do it.
