Meet the Staff of My House
Job Title CEO
How did you get involved with MyHOUSE Prior to starting MyHOUSE Sports Gear, I owned a convenient store. The convenient store was located on a country road with a bridge nearby. The state closed the bridge and the convenient store was no longer convenient to the customers. I needed to do something on the weekends to bring in extra money. MMA was getting big, so I thought selling MMA gear may be a good idea to help pay some bills. After 2 years of selling MMA part time, I closed the doors of the convenient store and decided to devote all my time to MyHOUSE Sports Gear
