Eli is originally from Alvin, Texas (just south of Houston). He initially started out his higher education journey at the University of Houston before deciding to enlist in the United States Air Force where he was stationed at Tinker Air Force Base near Oklahoma City. During his enlistment he returned to school, this time at a small liberal arts university, Oklahoma City University, where he graduated with a Bachelor of Science in entertainment business. During his time as a student, he was given the privilege of serving in many student leadership positions, including the president of the Interfraternity Council and vice president of the Student Government Association.
Upon graduating, he and his wife moved to Los Angeles, where he joined Woodbury University in Burbank, California, and worked in a variety of roles from alumni event planning to admissions. During this time in Southern California, he earned his M.A. in organizational leadership (from Woodbury University), and also became a member of both the 2011 Leadership Los Angeles Cohort and Tournament of Roses Association. He is a proud member of the Lambda Chi Alpha international fraternity.
