The inner city of Columbus, Ohio shaped and raised me. I am proud to say that I graduated from The Arts and College Preparatory Academy, for it was there that I developed my passion for communications. As a former youth pastor and current motivational speaker, I have the privilege of using my gifts and talents to speak into peoples lives, encouraging them to become all that they were meant to be. Most of my working career has been spent serving the needs of at risk youth, doing all that I can to be a positive role model to a younger generation. In my spare time I enjoy engaging in my hobbies which are doing jigsaw puzzles, writing poetry, working out and playing basketball.
