I attended college at the University of Southern Mississippi where I majored in graphic communications. I also did a summer stint at Alcorn State University. After leaving college, I moved to Atlanta, Georgia on March 1, 1996. Rolling in with the Olympics, my goal was to become one of the greatest graphic and fine artist in the world.
Professionally, I have worked in Corporate America in all facets of design from Print Production Manager to Senior Art Director. Some of the companies I have worked for are MCI Worldcom, Gannett Co. Inc. and Bank of America. As an entrepreneur, some of my clients have been The Carter Center, National CASA and the Morehouse School of Medicine.
As a community activist, I created KIDS FIRST! which is a youth organization. During the summer months, we provide free breakfasts, lunches and enrichment for children up to 18 years of age. Through this initiative, we have been able to employ and manage a team of 12 teens and 18 adults. We also advocate on behalf of children for a better educational experience. We have had great success in changing policy around the needs of our children. Some examples of this would be rallying to save schools from closure, fighting to restore bus service and making sure that children have books for class.
