Introduction

Welcome! My name is CJ Murphy and I grew up in Greenwich, Connecticut. I am the first born in a family of four, with my younger sister Parker and two fantastic parents.┬áThere is no doubt that both myself and my sister have had a very fortunate upbringing, but this did not happen out of luck. My parents have and continue to work tirelessly in order to allow me and my sister to be presented with all kinds of fantastic opportunities, and ultimately chase our dreams. With privilege often comes a sense of entitlement, and my parents made deliberate decisions in their parenting style throughout our childhood in order to combat this sense of entitlement that is seemingly omnipresent throughout our hometown. While our family may be considered “traditional” by many, the journey that my parents undertook in order to get to this point is anything but traditional.
