Adrian was born in Atlanta, Georgia, but spent a good part of his life in Akron, Ohio. He moved to Tallahassee, FL where he received a basketball scholarship from Florida State University. Adrian graduated with a degree in Social Science and went on to play professional basketball in Spain.
After returning from Spain, he began his entrepreneurial work back in Tallahassee where he started GameSpeed Basketball: an academy geared toward developing the skills of young athletes in specific sports. With the success of his skills development training, he launched 925 Athletic Ministries, focusing on spiritually training college athletes around the country.
His recent endeavor has been the launching of Engage Church, planted in the heart of Tallahassee in January 2013. Since Day 1, the entire mission of Engage has been to “Engage God, People, and Culture.”
Adrian and his wife, Wendy, married in 2001. Originally from Atlanta, Georgia, Wendy is a graduate of Florida State University with a Bachelors Degree in Public Relations and Psychology. Wendy was the Head Coach for the Florida State Dance Team and is currently the Director of Dance Fusion Studios. With both of them owning their own companies, they have always made it their mission to break down the barriers between the sacred and secular.
They have three children, Jalen, Brooklynn, and Peyten. Their family is established in Tallahassee and have a passion and heart for the city of Tallahassee.
