“I have experienced both sides of life, from living with rats and roaches to being a Hall of Famer at one of the largest global brands and publicly traded companies in the world. Today, I am a successful small business owner building brands of my own and I believe in my heart that all Houstonians, regardless of their economic circumstances deserve the same opportunities to build a better life for themselves.”
“In the coming weeks and months I will make additional announcements as necessary regarding my campaign and our team.
