There are four core areas that are of utmost importance to me and lays the foundation in which I do business.1# GOD - KNOW GOD, KNOW VALUE....NO GOD, NO VALUE.I am a firm believer in Christ. 2# Family - I am the proud father of six incredible children (4 boys, 2 girls) and husband for over 20 years to my lovely wife. A family that dwells peacefully amongst each other (not perfectly), is a family that adds strength to communities in which they live. I strive to become a better man daily, so that I can be a better father, husband, uncle, son, and grandfather to my family.
COMMUNITY -My belief is that the better person you are as an individual, makes up a stronger community. My commitment to serving my community is embedded in the core value that if I don’t strive to make a difference, then how can I ever complain about the ills in my community? I strive to be the example of change that I want to see in my neighborhoods.
BUSINESS MAN - I've worked since the age of 13, from cutting grass, scrubbing toilets, construction, picking strawberries, fast food restaurants to running a 16+ year Dj/Music Production company, Life Coach, and Public Speaker and successful in branding the O.G.ONE movement as a positive reflection for the Northwest.
