By the time he reached the age of five he was raised on 35th & Wentworth with his other grandmother (Dad's side of the family) until he reached early adulthood. During this time he lived in some rough and moderately rough neighborhoods, but never allowed his environment to stop him from doing what it took to better himself.
At the age of two he modeled custum made clothing and walked the runway as he was strutting for channel 2 Eyewitness News. He went on to model for college students during his teen years and getting paid while doing nature walks. Between times he performed and wrote poetry at school events, venues, broadband radio stations with over 120 interviews, clubs, community events and some family events. He went on to continue his passion for poetry as an adult.
In February 2012, he wrote his first book "When The Tiers of Life Play". This book was inspired by the diversity in his life as he grew up multitalented, multiracial, and in neighborhoods where there were multiple nationalities. In his 50 page book he wanted to write for mutiple people no matter their age. He also wanted to encourage love, hope, and faith.
To this day he looks to inspire love, hope, and faith in the lives of many people as a means to give back to humanity.
