Where are you from? I was born in Orangeburg, South Carolina, but I have lived in the Mattapan neighborhood of Boston for over 40 years.

Where did you go to school? What did you studying? I went to Wheelock College and got my Bachelors of Social Work and my Masters of Social Work and Non-Profit Leadership.

Who inspires you? My mother and children--especially my oldest son.

Why did you want to work with the team at Fathers’ Uplift? Because I am a father who has had challenges that made it extremely difficult to be fully engaged in my two oldest children. Also, I am a product of an absent father. In fact, I do not know what he looks like in person or in a photo. I never met my father.

Where do you see yourself in 5 years? In five years, I see myself building my own empire of empowering others.

What thought or message would you want to put in a fortune cookie? “Be more God-centered instead of self-centered”
