Small Start

Small Start, Big Future

1986: I graduated from Lake High School in Uniontown, Ohio, the same high school my mom and dad attended. By the age of 14, I was suffocating in the waters of the small town fish bowl.

I earned straight A’s, played basketball on a great team, mastered the trombone and earned a Presidential Scholarship to St. John Fisher College in Rochester, New York.

I left for college, headed for the “big city” in my small town brain.

I had a plan. A big plan. My theme song was “Big Time,” by Peter Gabriel.
