I’m a 24 year old poker pro with business aspirations.  When I graduated from Emory University in 2006, I moved to New York to pursue a career on Wall Street.  That job panned out poorly; nearly 9 months after my start date, the firm folded.  Instead of going back to the grind of the corporate world, I reverted back to my college ways of playing poker as a source of income.  Since I’ve become a professional player, I’ve traveled the world (i.e. Chile, Uruguay), had my fair share of bad beat stories and interesting encounters with more well-known celebrity pros, staked a number of other poker players (horses) in tournaments, and even won my fair share of credit card roulette competitions (I’ll explain later).  This summer (June/July ’09), I will be moving to Las Vegas for 45 days to do more than, hopefully, grind out a living.  I’ll be living with 4 other professionals as we try to take Vegas by storm (and not get sunburn or heat exhaustion in the process).  Poker isn’t always fun or glamorous and there are plenty of times I wish I did something else, but for the time being, this is my life and I’m living it my way…
