I obtained massive amounts of student loan debt and earned degrees in communication from Ohio University and San Diego State University (SDSU). My work has been published in The Billfold, the International Journal of Intercultural Relations, Scary Mommy, Street Carnage, and Defenestration Magazine. I also wrote a book called The Imperfect Enjoyment, which, thanks to my Uncle Boo, was popular among inmates in Ohio’s criminal justice system. My hobbies are: trading stocks, loving Walmart, and staying boo’d up with my wife. It’s been said that I bring a lot to the table.

Professionally, I was an adjunct lecturer at SDSU and project director at a large community health center. Now I do contract work related to writing and editing and community healthcare—anything from revising personal statements to writing website copy to leading wellness initiatives. I am always looking to take on new projects, more so now than ever since my three boys are getting older and becoming less accepting of hand-me-downs. Shoot me a message if you need assistance with a project. You can also view my resume, which lists recent long-term assignments and helps to convince you that I am worthy of your money.

This website is an “Occasionally Hilarious, Always Interesting” collection of short stories and blog posts relating to travel and finance, the peculiarities of children, and the various adventures and situations in which I wander. Thanks for reading.

I actually saw you on the news and I was like hey I know that guy. You were my instructor my freshman year in my Africana studies comm class. Hated public speaking, and I was terrified. You being the first black male teacher of anything, that quietly planted the seeds of what I wanted to be. Currently subbing, but I am a credentialed teacher, I’ve taught world History and U. S. History to middle school school, worked with at risk your for a while now .I speak in front of people everyday haha..
