Industry registration is now open for EXP's 2019 GPS Your Future career discovery event on Friday, October 25, 2019, from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m., at Long Beach City College (LAC Campus).

Raised in Compton as a foster kid after suffering physical and sexual abuse, he taught himself how to program computers at age 8 and started his career as an INROADS intern.
