Your College Success Coach
Empowering students has long been a passion of mine because, when I entered college, several years ago, I didn’t have a blueprint as to how I was going to succeed in the higher education environment. Although neither of my parents were college educated, they both understood the value of a good education and armed my brothers and I with a very important tool; perseverance. Once a struggling student who lost two academic scholarships, I am now a Higher Education Administrator who helps the next generation of college graduates find their way.
I’ve been fortunate to have worked in a college setting for over 15 years while traveling the country delivering College Success Workshops to thousands of current and future college students. Being a College Success Coach has been amazing in that I now have the opportunity to arm students with all of the tools I lacked when I started my journey toward earning my degree.
- Born and raised in Detroit, I still call the area home. I live in Southfield, MI with my wife Sherikia and our son Donovan. They inspire me daily to strive for greatness in everything I do. In addition to publishing Finding My Way in 2016 and Donovan’s College Adventure in 2018, I have also been blessed to be regular contributor to the Michigan Chronicle; one of America’s oldest publications. Additionally, I enjoy mentoring through programs such as Big Brothers Big Sisters, Oakland Community College’s Man Up program and Detroit Teen Hype.
