Single custodial father of two, I finished high school & college in Pittsburgh and then served in the U.S. Air Force. After working job after job, I decided to step out and open my own business (wine making). Initially I was laughed at and told that “black people cannot be successful in the Wine biz”. 7 years later, I am one of the top minority wine makers in the United States. My company, Unico Vino, serves at parties and events around the country. I have built this business by myself and will continue to grow it. My goal is to be the top Wine producer in the Country. Graduated from Valley High School (New Kensington Pa) in 1993 Graduated from Southern Ohio College (Cincinnati OH) in 2002 (Computer Science) Single father of 2 children (full custody) Air Force Veteran and medal recipient
