"I've been working at Yale Appliance + Lighting since August, 2003. When I first started working here, I worked in the showroom hanging light fixtures, making small deliveries and interacting with customers in the showroom. I started learning the lighting side of the business while working the floor. In 2005, I became a full-time member of the lighting sales team since I was doing so well. From there, I've learned everything I could and am now able to sell appliances as well. The training shall continue."

Greatest Accomplishments:

"I'd have to say that my greatest accomplishment would be coming from the small of island of Cape Verde at a young age and finding myself where I am now. I came to the United States when I was seven years old. All I know is my parents brought me here to have a better future. I had no ability to speak the english langauge and that was very difficult for me. I went to school, learned the language, graduated and worked hard to be where I am today. I have a wonderful job, a house of my own, my incredible son Jaylen and a loving family to provide for.


Basketball, soccer and riding motorcycles.


I love helping people out. I will go above and beyond to help anyone in need.
