I’m a critically acclaimed author, featured voice on prominent media outlets, TEDx and event speaker, empowerment coach, and someone whose purpose is to uplift you through my words.
I’m passionate about the art of storytelling and have been fortunate enough to apply this passion in being named a Top 100 Contributor with Yahoo! Sports, becoming a Top Writer on Medium, as well as working with Cosmopolitan magazine, the New York Post, Bustle, Blavity, mindbodygreen, SLAM, and Desert Companion magazine, among other publications.
I’ve also authored e-books on some of the biggest names in music and pop culture for Hyperink Publishing and been featured on the FOX lifestyle television show, MORE.
When I’m not writing, speaking, or doing something creative, I enjoy volunteering.
The need in our communities is great, and I take pride in helping in any way that I can. My favorite opportunities are those that involve at-risk youth. I grew up right outside Chicago, in Gary, IN. As someone who’s endured challenging circumstances, it feels like the honor of my life anytime I can serve as a positive example of what’s possible for these kids.
I’m also a bit of a yogi, an avid reader, and an advocate for staying ready. That’s me in a nutshell. Passionate and purpose-driven. I believe that anything you do in love, is done well.
