“I do two things: write and work for the
improvement of my community”


I do a lot of community development work. My passions have always included social justice, economic equity, and racial reconciliation,
which is why I work at The Oaks Academy Middle School and do work for community organizations like the Kheprw Institute. Most of my work centers around the 46208 zip code (one of the “worst” zip codes in the country). We specialize in Asset Based Community Development, finding the gifts and talents within the community and networking them to improve the quality of the community.
