I'm a critically acclaimed author, featured voice on prominent media outlets, TEDx and event speaker, empowerment partner, and someone whose purpose is to uplift you with 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, a Top Writer on Medium, and working with Cosmopolitan, the New York Post, Bustle, Blavity, mindbodygreen, Desert Companion magazine, and more publications.
I hold a masters degree from Valparaiso University and studied Rhetoric: The Art of Persuasive Writing and Speaking through HarvardX.
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 that anything you do in love, is done well.
