My Personal PhilosophyHaving the honor and privilege of being a proud father to three healthy, beautiful children is a Blessing and God’s greatest to me that I will gratefully cherish the rest of my days. My three children have changed me as a man and becoming a parent has changed my entire outlook on life. I will do all in my power to pass along my passion for intellect to my children. While at the same time instilling the importance that having a spiritual foundation is also the key to the pursuit of happiness in life.

My Work and Passion

Growing up as a child I was fortunate and blessed to have a very close knit and loving family. Traditions and values were expected, including a strong Spiritual foundation. The core of all were the gifts and talents that I was blessed with through my lineage. This was the gift of intellect and intelligence. I love to read Spiritual and Inspirational Novels. Writing has always been my number one passion. There was one moment and time during my life where I wanted to be a journalist and freelance writer. This was until I realized what I had the true urge and passion for. I wanted to pursue my love and become a Social Worker. Experiencing extreme struggles and loss of loved ones in my life and personally experiencing the injustices that young African American men deal with in today’s Society and what drove me to this career choice.
