I was born in Haywood County Tennessee. I was raised as a farmer's son picking cotton and all the things that relate to farming activities. I went to high school in Brownsville, TN, where I was active in sports and music. I attended Tuskegee Institute in Alabama and graduated from The University of The District of Columbia, located in Washington D.C. receiving a degree in Criminology. I spent most of my adult life in Washington D.C., working for the federal government and retired in 1994. Also while living in D.C. I played in various musical bands. While playing secular music in Washington D.C., I realized that there was something missing in my life, and I began to search for what that void was. As I began to watch various Gospel programs on TV and talk to Ministers that I knew personally, I realized that it was time for me to put away the ways of the world and seek salvation. At that point I began to visit different churches. One of those churches was The Evangel Temple, which was located in Washington D.C. I was convicted after hearing the word, after which I was baptized in the name of Jesus Christ. Shortly after this baptism as I began to study the word, I discovered certain revelations of truth and was introduced unto the seventh day sabbath and the holy name of Yahweh and Yahshua. I am currently a Minister in the faith of Yahshua the Messiah. After retirement I moved back to the state of Tennessee where I traveled extensively to other areas. I'm involved in physical fitness activities and dietary disciplines. I enjoy meeting and working with people of different walks of life. I'm a very positive person who believes that age is not a handicap in pursuing the things that you desire. If you believe you can do it, it is possible.
