My life experience has been a diverse and interesting paradox.

I’ve lived in the ghettos and lived in the suburbs.
My family has lived in a large home and we have been homeless.
I’ve been suicidal, but now wish to live everyday to the fullest.
I’m currently healthy, but I’ve been deathly ill.
I was incarcerated and now I’m free serving the incarcerated.
I’m black and my wife is white.
I’m Muslim and my wife is Christian.

Because I have lived a life of societal opposites, I have a startling, unique solution based perspective. I seek solutions no matter who it is and what the issue is.



My current work with the Prison Education Project, Trust Talks series, Talking the Talk forums and other ventures is designed to bring hope to individuals and opposing parties willing to be open to seek solutions to their pressing issues.
