I am a proud native New Yorker, retired from the United States Air Force after 22 years of honorable service. I currently reside in San Antonio, Texas. I am an active participant in community empowerment and social activism for positive change. I am a proud member of the Bexar County Buffalo Soldiers, and the Macedonia Baptist Church Social Justice Ministry. My passions are my faith in Christ Jesus, family love, photography and the arts, Black history research, Earth, Wind & Fire music, and "hugging trees!"
