I am an African American with Sicilian from my paternal side. I am a University of Oregon student of the class of 2015. I participated in varsity football, basketball, and track in all of my four years of high school. However, I decided not to participate in both football and track at the collegiate level for OSU, so I could focus on track at U of O. I didn't participate in track my freshman year due to personal reasons, but will be back and participate this sophomore year as a sprinter.
In addition, I chairman and founder of an asset management firm, D.J. Hamilton EPCA, LLC, which I established in November 2009. The firm right now consists of independent contracted advisors that manage a clientele's investment portfolios.
Some other interesting facts about me is that I come from a family of athletes. My cousin is the 400m high school record holder in Oregon. I'm blood-related cousins of both Cliff Robinson and Michael Jordan, and cousin through marriage of Terrence Jones and the Stoudamires (Salim and Damon). My aunt, mom, and godmother were all former state winning track athletes. While my dad's younger brother was a junior Olympic athlete. Dad's uncle was professional 800m runner for the US and was world ranked at a time. Finally, my mom was the chief marketing officer (CMO) for Nike, Inc. before the title was changed and divided into different titles. In addition, our family is close friends with the Houlemards, of which the President of the Air Jordan Brand is Keith Houlemard.
