Community Development

I enjoy living in City of Chicago, working in the neighborhood of ​Austin, to develop local business and stimulate economic ​growth. I love working in the Soul City Business Corridor, a ​black owned business district in Austin along Chicago Avenue.

Civic Engagement

As a gun violence survivor, public safety is very important to ​me. I believe it is vital we build strong relationships with our ​public & elected officials. Together, in collaboration, we have ​the power to increase the safety & vitality of our ​neighborhoods.

Youth Leadership

I pour back into our youth. My desire is for them to view me as ​a positive male role model to follow. Everyday my focus is to ​build the next generation of leaders, professionals, and ​entrepreneurs. I tell my students that Ownership is the Key to ​Wealth.
