Who Am I?

I am a black man, born and raised on the south side of Fort Wayne, Indiana.  I’ve seen less than some, as much as some, and more than some, in my 32 years of life.  My formal education consisted of both private and public institutions as a minority student AND as a majority student.  My informal education came from growing up with a younger brother in a single-parent home, with a loving support system of extended family and friends, all while navigating streets that showed no love and taught harsh lessons.
