Not many people know I was born in Paris, France. My father was recruited by a U.S. company to move to Memphis for a job. At the ripe old age of two and a half, I came to this country. One of the first families my parents met had a son my age named Stephen. Stephen and I went to the same school through nursery school, elementary school, high school and college. In fact, it took us both five years to graduate from Memphis State.
