While some of you may know me as a writer and positive thinker, some of you may also know me as a person who is always looking for ways to make people laugh. There's something so important about knowing how to make people smile. It always brings out the best in who you are.

 No matter which side of me you may know, you came here to learn more - and I am glad you did.

Born in Brooklyn, New York in 1985, I am the son of two amazing parents, a brother to four loving siblings, and an uncle to ten adorable nieces and nephews; all of which have shaped me into the individual I am today.

I'm a passionate Leader for a company I adore; one that many of you may be familiar with. Every single day I am given the opportunity to motivate, inspire and challenge others to do their best work. It's been one of the most gratifying experiences of my life and has taught me the importance of persistence and perseverance.

Stop concerning yourself with everything you don’t have and fall in love with everything you do have. Life is only as beautiful as you see it to be.

Ever since I was a little boy I had this overwhelming desire to do something that would impact the lives of others. I've always believed in being kind hearted, respectful and humble.

God has blessed me with so many beautiful people in my life, has given me experiences I used to think I could only dream of, but most importantly He has given me an opportunity to live in his world. 

When life took me to my darkest days I realized I had two choices; succumb or overcome. I chose the latter. In doing so I promised myself I would share my story with people to give them insight, to give them hope, to give them strength.

Writing has always been therapeutic for me, but it was only recently did I find that my words can benefit others. With your help, they've reached tens of millions of people around the world and together we will reach even more.

This is my life, in my words. And I've only just begun.
