LiteWork Events originated as a vision to create an Urban Socialite Network in Boston. What better way to build on this vision than to highlight some of Boston’s most dynamic urban young professionals and socialites! Check out our latest feature, and hopefully you’ll also catch up with them at our next event!
During this same school year I decided not to allow my mom (who was a stylist) to cut my hair anymore. So as the new hair growth would come in, I would go to the basement and play with her trimmers. I’d line myself up making it seem as though I got a fresh haircut. After multiple line ups and scars on myself, I developed a good feel for the trimmers and the vibration it caused. I moved onto actually cutting my own hair soon after, trying to perfect my elementary cutting skills. Being a success-driven young man, I would talk to myself in the mirror and say, “I’m going to teach math, and cut hair in the summertime”. Twenty-one years later I’m doing exactly that. The only difference is, I’ve stepped away from teaching for a moment to soley operate my establishment, my dream. There’s nothing like only having to answer to yourself.
I was cutting hair in my basement for 6 years before the Lord said it was time to expand my ceiling, enabling my wife and I to open our 1st business venture, “The Private Office Barbershop” (TPOB), established in June 2015. Now, I confidently refer to myself as the “Best Barber in the World”, hands down!
