What are you most known for?


Volunteering, Non-profit Board Service and Mentoring.


How would your best friend describe you?


Fiercely, loyal!


Who inspires you?


The future. I love life. Knowing that there are endless possibilities. I can't wait to see what happens in the future and I want to live life to the fullest.


What is your greatest accomplishment?


My family. We have achieved so much and have truly been blessed. The future is endless.


In a perfect world, what is one thing you'd like to see happen for Black men?


Working together as a strong collective to make life better for our families and the greater community.


What does perseverance mean to you? Can you share an example of a time you persevered?


Never give up. I worked a pretty tiring job that didn't appear to have any chances to affect my future. In retrospect, the job and the dedication to the job allowed me to make the connections that I need to make, in order to join now Senator Mark Warner's operations.


Which songs are on your playlist, that you think other Black men should add to theirs?


  • Public Enemy - "Bring the Noise:" social consciousness. It's hard to listen to this song and not get revived for any challenge.

  • Public Enemy - "Fight the Power:" This song made me understand that I could be strong when any difficulty arose from being a Black man.

  • Sam Cooke - "Change is Gonna Come:" Still relevant in our time. Keep pushing.

  • Bob Marley - "One Love:" Inspirational of how things can be.

  • Donnie McClurkin - "Stand:" The song has got me through some tough times and reminded me that "this issue" is part of the journey. I'll be stronger afterwards.


If you could go back in time and have a conversation with your younger self; which year would you return to? How old would you be in that year? 

What would you say to your younger self, to inspire him about his bright future?


1993 - 21 years of age. I would tell myself to do the exact same thing. Take one of the biggest risks I had ever done up until that point and go forward.
