I was once told, “When you reach certain levels of success, don’t forget to send the elevator back down!” I cling to this advice and today my life’s work is directly connected to my community. In 2019, USA Today proclaimed my hometown one of the worst cities for African Americans, but I counter the challenges I faced (while growing up there and embarking on my entrepreneurial journey) by ensuring communities of color are treated with dignity and respect. I focus on the value of humanity regardless of race, class, or geography.
Commercial Real Estate Developer
Can you imagine being so committed to a vision, that you worked on several full-time projects without pay to refine your craft over a 9-year span? Well, that’s exactly what I did! Aside from hearing “NO” religiously, I came to realize that it would only take one “YES” to confirm what I envisioned as a child and knew in my heart. Today, as a Commercial Real Estate Developer who specializes in Affordable Housing with active projects across multiple cities, and ~$200mm pipeline, I can say part of my vision has been realized!
Your Real Estate & Business Advisor
I believe developing communities is the gateway to a more collaborative and prosperous future. I intend to energize, empower, enlighten, and expose communities of color information on business, entrepreneurship, real estate, and financial literacy tools to build generational wealth.
Speaker and Influencer
Sometimes, a few encouraging words can go a long way! I have had the opportunity to read and listen to many motivational speeches that resonate with me today. My hope is, through my story, to inspire the next Entrepreneur or Commercial Real Estate Developer who is manifesting their vision against tremendous odds. There’s only 1 Rule: PERSEVERE. Inspiration is free, but the grind is sold separately! I’ll meet you at the top!!
