I Joined the NAAGA organization in 2019 to seek a like-minded group of 2nd Amendment lovers and to dispel the myth of African American gun owners.  With the believe that I can reach students of all ages, genders, and experience levels to develop a better understanding of how to protect oneself while being a law biding citizen in our great nation.  


I have been in love with firearms since a youth in the Boy Scouts of America where I first was able to shoot the .22lr rifle at H. Roe Bartle Scout Reservation. Still serving as an active volunteer with the BSA Heart of America Council holding positions such as local Scoutmaster for BSA Troop 1027 and Council Shooting Sports Committee.
