Biography

About the Author

I’m a Self Published Author and Chief Executive Officer of Street Level Publications. A company dedicated to “bringing you the drama of the streets.”

I have a degree in accounting and a PHD from the streets. I developed my writing skills as a means of identifying the areas in my life where I made some bad decisions. As a result, I discovered my life has been filled with nothing but drama.

Two for Five, which is the title of my first book, was written in fictional form based on my personal experiences hustling on the streets of New York and eventually becoming a user of the same drugs I sold. I struggled with my addiction for many years but could never achieve sobriety because I lacked a conscious contact with a power greater than myself.

I recently completed an intense inpatient treatment program in Harlem where I addressed my 20 plus years of substance abuse to crack cocaine and continue to maintain my sobriety on a daily basis.

I’ve developed a personal relationship with God and truly believe had it not been for God’s grace and mercy, I would still be trapped in the grips of my addiction. I wrote “Two for Five” not just for the purpose of entertaining but as a means of depicting the cycle of destruction that has devastated my life and continues to threaten many others in our communities.

It’s my hope that the characters in my book will cause the reader to reflect on the course and direction of their life and make a decision to change or face the consequences of their choices.
