My existence isn't perfect, but it is full of purpose. I am a father, husband, uncle, cousin, son, friend, and brother that has endured many highs and lows on this wild ride called LIFE. As a teenager, I carried my essentials in a black backpack everywhere I went. These "must-haves" included my book of rhymes that I used to write MUSIC, art & culture magazines that influenced my FASHION sense and a black spiral notebook that became a written testimony to LIFE. These items served as my daily reminder to chase my dreams, follow my heart, and create a world full of endless positive possibilities.
Over 20 years later, I still carry this black backpack on my journey to create MUSIC, FASHION, and LIFE.
I have worn many hats during this journey. As an experienced youth development specialist and educator, I have spent over 15 years dedicated to developing investment-centered programs and initiatives that support young adults' purpose, passions, and pursuits. I am a creative, moonlighting podcast content creator, author, motivational speaker, minister, songwriter, and community activist. I am moved by love, influenced by faith, and inspired by humanity.
