“A man is not great because he never failed, a man is great because failure has never stopped him.”


As a spiritual man, I believe that you don’t pick where you serve. You serve where you’re picked. Thus, I utilize my time constructively to empower and encourage each person I encounter in life to be the best, most authentic version of themselves rather than a second-rate version of someone else, as we are all powerfully unique.

I’m proud to have written and published several inspirational books. I dedicated one called The Girl in The Mirror to two of my lovely nieces, Core’Ana and Core’Asia. It aims to inspire young teenage girls to identify not only with the beauty reflected in the mirror but also within. Another book of mine is Confronting The Hood Mentality, which is specially written for at-risk inner-city youth with a powerful message to outgrow your environment and avoid cultural pitfalls. In chapter five, you can also take the Hood Mentality Evaluation Test to gauge your level of orientation by answering 25 questions and tallying your score.

When you change your mindset, you ultimately change your life! Both titles are available on I sincerely thank you for your prayers and support. My new book, Battle Tested, is coming soon, and I will be a featured guest on the Prison To Promise podcast with host Dr. Craig Waleed. I can be reached directly at and will promptly reply. HOSQ, I appreciate you and your entire staff for this fantastic opportunity.

When you’re incarcerated, your voice is silenced, and it’s easy to feel like your life doesn’t matter, not even to God. So, I commend people like you who helped to restore our hope in the goodwill of humanity and created a platform to share our creativity. Also, if there’s anything I can do to help make a difference, please don’t hesitate to request my services. I genuinely believe that hands that serve are holier than lips that pray.
