Welcome to my blog! It’s Just Me… a lover of Jesus, neighbor and self. This site has gone through many interactions since 2006, but at its heart is me sharing observations about my journey through life: whether it’s real-life situations, movies, music, comedy or a host of other areas and interests…
My hope is that what you find here will help you in your pursuit of your purpose! God has placed some dreams within you. The fulfillment of those dreams begin with knowing Him.
LIFE IS an ADVENTURE! Are you ready for the journey? Let’s go!
It’s just me… LORD willing, I will turn 43 this year. And while I have been able to have a number of accomplishments behind my name, lately none of those things have mattered much. Perhaps, it’s a new phase I’m entering due to my age, which has necessitated a re-structuring of the priorities in my life. But I came to the conclusion a month-or-so ago that part of my identity was wrapped up in my accomplishments… and yes… even in my failures.
Sure, there are still things on my Bucket List I would love to do before I die; but part of me was becoming frustrated because they have yet to happen. There are cities and countries I want to visit, people I want to meet and things I want to create! But I realized it is not good to get wrapped up in the unseen future of what could be. Nor is it good to be wrapped up in ‘romanticizing’ what was. To do both or either is to live at the expense of What Is. Read more... (751 words, 1 image, estimated 3:00 mins reading time)
As Co-Pastor of Bethesda Baptist Church of New Rochelle, I have the opportunity to preach every month. On January 8, 2017, my message was entitled, “What Keeps You From Running?” The text came from Hebrews 12: 1-3.
It snowed the night of January 7th. So, attendance was less than usual on January 8th. After preaching, I felt this particular message needed to be shared, not only with the larger congregation, but also with Christ-Followers everywhere.
To my surprise, without my asking beforehand, the sermon had been videotaped! If you desire to grow in your walk with Jesus Christ, then this message is for you.
My Speedsuit Powers Trilogy is now complete! Book Three released on December 8, 2016. And you can check out the brand new website at: www.SpeedsuitTrilogy.com
This trilogy continues to be a MAJOR UNDERTAKING that has lasted over 8 years (that’s just since Book One was released.) I had the initial concept for about 14 years.
NOW COMES THE TASK OF MAKING IT A “HOUSEHOLD NAME” IN AS MANY COMMUNITIES AS POSSIBLE!

At the beginning of 2016, I started G.P.S., a Motivational Series on Youtube and in February, I released my first mixtape, Pursuing Significance. Why did I do this? Because I love helping people pursue their purpose! Part of the reason is because I know how difficult it has been for me to discover and develop my talents and skill-sets in order to pursue the dreams that live within me!
As an author, speaker, filmmaker and interpersonal communications coach, I create experiences to help you overcome the fears in life that keep you paralyzed. Then you can turn obstacles into opportunities and move from where you are to where you need and want to be!
Everything I do here is to help you become the best you possible. Are you ready for the journey? Let’s go!

I was presented with the opportunity to be the guest speaker at a graduation ceremony in the Bronx for The Osborne Association on Friday, March 11, 2016. The title of my message was: “You Matter.” (Watch video below). It was an honor to meet with the staff and be able to speak into the lives of their graduates from the Justice Community Program, The Fatherhood Initiative and the Career Center.
When I was invited, back in December 2015, I had never heard of the organization. However, as I started to research them, it became apparent that the Osborne Association is making a tremendous impact in NY state. Here is their Mission Statement:
”The Osborne Association offers opportunities for individuals who have been in conflict with the law to transform their lives through innovative, effective, and replicable programs that serve the community by reducing crime and its human and economic costs. We offer opportunities for reform and rehabilitation through public education, advocacy, and alternatives to incarceration that respect the dignity of people and honor their capacity to change.” Read more...
