I am a 1994 graduate of Southern Illinois University @ Carbondale with a B.S. in Marketing. Although I am a product of the mean streets of Chicago, I adamantly refuse to be defined but them. I am a staunch advocate for prison reform; therefore, my views obligate me to contribute regularly to Examiner.com as the Chicago Prison Policy Examiner.  It is my inner-city origin that adds the unique flair that resonates throughout the body of my literary offerings. I’ve recently published my first true crime book, “The Darker Side of Evil,” and will open Turner Entertainment Group, Inc. in April 2013. My passion and tenacity makes my name one to look for in the world of entertainment & literature.
