Although I am what most consider young, I would say I have a relative amount of work experience. As a child, I grew up helping my parents in our small retail business. From them, I gained the personal skills I would later need for my first "official" job. At eighteen, I applied at IHOP, where I was hired as a server. I served for IHOP a little over two months before I was offered a crew chief position. I also assisted with needed Manager on Duty shifts during this time. When IHOP acquired a need for cooks, I willingly transitioned to the back of the house position. I saw it as an opportunity to try something new and learn more about the business. I continued to cook at IHOP for some time until I decided to dwell in the automotive industry. From there, I decided to leave IHOP and went to work for P^2 Design and Custom Fabrication. I worked at P^2 Design and Custom Fabrication over four months until I received an offer I could not refuse. Thus, I took the proposition to become a roofing salesmen in Oklahoma with the sales team, Storm Seals. Accompanying the end of the season came a move home and the opportunity to seize new skills.
