When I'm Not Writing

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 Pursue Other Creative Endeavors

I love working in TV & Film and have appeared in commercials, as a spokesperson, and as a main character in a sitcom. I'm also a bit of a yogi and an avid reader. That's me in a nutshell. Passionate and purpose-driven. I believe anything you do in love, is done well.

 

Be encouraged,
