Torrence works as a Sales Engineer and specializes in Plastic Part Design and Welding for the Automotive, Appliance and Medical Industries. Derived from his upbringing, his passion is helping low-income children succeed in life. He is currently the President of a Young Professionals board for Big Brothers Big Sisters and a mentor for the Black Achievers program at his local YMCA. Torrence describes himself as a Liberal who believes in strong grassroots movements to effectively bring about change, which should be bottom up rather than top down. Most of his posts will focus on race relations because he believes that is the biggest disconnect we have as a society. When he isn't working or volunteering he can be found dominating a Ping-Pong table.
