Growing up as a local kid in Houston, I never thought I'd be a Barber. I wanted to be a doctor or athlete. Hair cutting was the last thing on my mind but I stayed in the barbershop; I always kept a nice haircut. At 15 I started cutting my own hair and eventually stopped going to the barbershop. I would cut friends as well, and cutting hair was my side hustle.
Fast forward 10 years, I had become a man that believed in working hard. I developed a strong work ethic in other fields, but barbering or barber school was the last thing on my mind. The amazing thing about life is you never know where you’ll land. That’s when I found myself unemployed for the first time. After spending some time praying about what direction I should go God showed me that my gift was in my hands. So I decided to enroll at Texas Barber College and in October of 05' that's where the dream began to take root. There were countless obstacles along the way but in October of 07' my entrepreneurial journey as a barber began. I was clueless and nervous but I was fearless, full of faith, and driven by a desire to be the best.
I worked tirelessly at investing in myself, and in March 2018 McKinley Cuts Barber Studio became a reality.
Drive, patience, work ethic, persistence, and interpersonal skills are the foundational tools that encompass being a Barber. My goal is to be the best well rounded barber the world has ever seen. My hope is that every client walks away feeling brand new.
My motto “It’s more than a haircut. It’s an experience.”
