He began his postal career in the early nineties as a temporary clerk before transitioning over to letter carrier for Cooper Postal Station in Lower Eastside, Manhattan. During that tenure, he held the title of Acting Supervisor for three months before returning to letter carrier so he could concentrate on penning his first novel. He currently resides in Charlotte, North Carolina with his wife Pamela and children Justin, Jordan and Milahn.
