Born and raised in the south, I bring a splash of southern flare to each of my speaking engagements and books with laughter and thought-provoking studies. Having a near death experience at 18, battles with depression and anxiety, filing bankruptcy at 23, and rebuilding my life from the bottom up, I believe that it is vital to teach on how to rise from the ashes.
I met and married the love of my life in 2007 and together we have three children, not including our two cats. In 2011, I wrote my first book entitled Visual Impairment which is listed on Amazon and Barnes & Noble. Recently, I wrote my second book Unpack: Life Lessons of an Unemployed Rock Star which is listed exclusively on Amazon.com. I am a recurring guest speaker at Grace Church in Chester, Illinois, vlogger, and blogger.
