I was born on March 14, 1990, in Atlanta, GA, the middle of 5 children. After being taken away from my mother and father at the age of 3. I would be raised in Gary, IN, by my grandma, and great-grandmother. We were raised in a 3 bedroom home where my siblings and I shared the smallest room, and for many years there was only one bed, which was mostly occupied by my eldest sister. That’s where the seed of independence was planted; not having a mother or father to rely on, my siblings and I would compete for the attention of our grandparents. This is also where I learned to rely on my gifts to get ahead in life, which included using my intelligence, drawing, singing, and my forward thinking mindset.
After graduating from high school, I would join the Marines, following in the footsteps of my older brother who joined the Navy a year earlier. While serving in the Marines as a cook, I would be deployed to many countries including Haiti, Jordan, Italy, Afghanistan, and Germany. While being deployed with the 24th MEU aboard the USS Nassau, the ship I was aboard would end up being attacked by pirates in the Atlantic Ocean in 2010, no harm was done though. Also while serving in the Marines, I would father my first son KJ, and also get married to my first wife. She would give birth to 3 of my children Aaliyah, Trayvon, and Kennisha. That marriage would last from 2011-2015.
After serving 4 years in the military and working at Taco Bell for a year, in addition to a semester of college, I would go back home to live with my Grandma after the passing of my great grandma. I would go to CDL School in Miami to learn to drive semi-trucks. After obtaining my license I get hired working for Schneider Trucking for 3 months, before moving on to become a Table GamesDealer, at Ameristar Casino. There I would find my true soulmate, Shavonia, whom I had previously met in High School. While working at Ameristar and dating Shavonia, she would give birth to my 5th child Athena in October of 2017.
By January of 2018, I decided to quit my job at the casino, and move to Las Vegas with my family. It was here in Las Vegas where I found my passion for speaking. By November of 2018 I would create my first podcast episode, Positive Minds Only. By 2019, I decided to start my own business Positive Minds Only, so I could help others, in life to become their greatest self. Instead of keeping the secrets to success for myself, I want to inspire the world to evolve collectively.
I believe that our thoughts create our reality, so think positive during the good and bad times in life. Our experience in life is full of ups and downs; it is how we think that will determine where we are headed in life.
