My parallel life flows between ministry and media. I am a community organizer, pastor, and journalist. Currently, I reside in Los Angeles. I travel across country continually and around the world occasionally. My life is globally-connected. My village is worldwide. Life is the greatest gift we possess enhanced by family and friends. Love and truth are the realities that balance life's experiences. Love God. Love Others. Love Yourself. Each one is connected and prioritized. When applied properly, all needs, desires, prayers, and wishes are manifested. God is above all else. Family, friends, and new acquaintances are the most important human beings along with friends yet to be met. Loving myself makes it possible to love others with quality care. My mistakes are lessons taught along the path. Sometimes tuition is very expensive. The journey requires learning experiences to guide us each step of the way.
