What kind of bird doesn't fly? A bird that doesn't try, 'cause all birds fly, except the bird that eats like a turkey ~~~ and then fry .... in someone's skillet on Thanksgiving Day.

Background Information

Born and raised in Columbus, Ohio - I gravitated towards the sport of boxing as a hobby of interest in the wake of getting jumped by a few trouble-makers. I won the Ohio district Golden Gloves boxing tournament, and became an influence and motivator to Jerry Louis Page. I played a major role in pushing him to victory in the 1984 Olympic games for the Gold medal.

In 1985 ; I began working for The Arlington Security Company  and  was recognized as Officer of the month. In addition , I  received a letter of commendation from State Senator, Paul Pfeiffer, as a tribute to my officer of the month award.

The following year I graduated from the Southern Ohio College, one year private security program with a 4.0 grade point average. Mrs Mcfarland, my English teacher , was captivated with my writing skills and poetry; and she encouraged me to continue my education;  so I went on to Capital University ( a private university ) and majored in speech communications, and minored in philosophy for one and a half years.

I moved to Minneapolis, Minnesota to hone my writing skills. And I began reciting my poetry in front on large audiences of  two to three hundren people for the Executive Director of the Plymouth Church Neighborhood Foundation Lee Blons in 2004.

I will be moving to Oakland, California at the end of the year of 2013. I have written four books. My first two books, "Rhymes of the Times" and "Shedding Light" are purchasable via and and and and 

My newly published book "Much Props" is currently available on and you can also get it here on AuthorsDen.
