I make my home in Anderson, Indiana. I graduated from Anderson University, where I studied Sociology, Peace & Conflict Transformation, and Spanish. I then received a Masters in Urban Studies & Community Development from Eastern University. I am the Executive Director for EPIC Initiatives , a community development corporation. I am also a Community & Economic Development Consultant currently contracted full-time with the City of Anderson. I enjoy coaching boxing, reading, writing, and discussing a variety of topics including faith, spirituality, and community. I strive to be a better father, husband, and friend, and to travel when I can.
