About meI’m a writer, author, poet, educator, scholar, and a self-proclaimed life-long learner and student of life. I’m as influenced by such legends as Maya Angelou, James Baldwin, Nikki Giovanni, Langston Hughes, Marlon Riggs, Robert Hayden, Richard Wright, Walt Whitman, and Paul Laurence Dunbar as I am by Common, Mos Def and Floetry who I think are all doing their thing in a way that is bringing poetry to the forefronts, through music and song that is so impressive. I’m also a huge fan of Terrance Hayes and his work as well as the unbelievably talented, Tim’m West.

I’m an adjunct faculty member at a number of universities, teaching undergraduate and graduate courses in business, finance, organizational behavior, management, and economics, and creative writing, and a freelance consultant and course developer, but my passion lies in writing and self-expression. I reside right outside of the Washington, DC area, and I’m the proud owner of Tugson Press.

I’m the author of RHYTHMS – Poetry and Muse, Soul-Full – Poetry, and MBG – Men Who are Black and Happen to be Gay and my work has appeared in Essence Magazine, on, and on, and not so long ago, I was the first place, Gold Medalist winner of the 2008 Independent Publisher Book Award (IPPY) in poetry for RHYTHMS, my first published book. In addition to this award, RHYTHMS – Poetry and Muse, and MBG, was also finalists in the 2008 Next Generation Indie Books Awards.
