A butterfly flapping its wings in one part of the world might ultimately cause a hurricane in another part of the world.
Don’t miss your small moment now to have big impact later.
“Simple can be harder than complex. You have to work hard to get your thinking clean to make it simple. But it’s worth it in the end because once you get there you can move mountains.”
- Steve Jobs
My challenging (yet inspiring) upbringing lacked diverse culture and had one-dimensional perspective on quality of life. It sparked a desire to see how others live and to learn about their experiences. It helped me become a student of culture and receptive to beliefs, ideas and standards of living opposite of mine. My professional achievements and ambitions are far exceeded by a strong desire to have a positive impact on the community where I grew up, be a mentor to young people and a role model to my family. I am on a campaign of personal advocacy to break down barriers to prosperity and help shape the narrative and realities of Detroit’s future as a dynamic, inclusive environment with endless opportunity. The work is driven down a dual path of creation and collaboration that aligns with and leverages my strong centers of influence to attract the next generation of thinking and doing. This allows me to engage, activate, and mobilize the passion, talent, and creative ideas of those who trust me with their aspirations and vision for the world they want to see.
