Author, Teacher, Creative Consultant
Originally a native of the Boogie Down Bronx, NYC, I was blessed with the privilege of a cultivated passion for life-long learning that allowed me to earn a liberal arts degree from Georgetown University in Washington, D.C, and Masters’ degrees in Educational Media and Religious Education.
These avenues allowed me to build a career as a teacher (Naugatuck Valley Community College, Conn.; Mount Saint Mary University, Los Angeles), creative advisor—most notably for life coach Tony Robbin—and travel writer, weekly newspaper editor and marketing and sales content creator.
My first book, Break: A Search for Being was released in 2004 and represents the autobiographical-novella approach to “ … the universal aspects of a misshapen culture, including materialism, racism, and the denial of true individualism, while expressing the complexities of being black in America and negotiating educational opportunity, taboos, questions of "selling out," and definitions of success.”
Currently residing in San Diego, California, I am wrapping up editing on the soon-to-be-released dystopian novel “The Culling.”
Gig life will soon mean teaching English Lit in Guangzhou, China late summer/early fall 2021.
My scholar and creator’s vocation is to connect people through pursuit of truth through knowledge, knowing ourselves and each other, and of the stories passed down to us through generations that shape and inform us for better and for worse.
