I am a Father, a U.S. Navy veteran, an IT Executive with over 15 years experience, a Blogger, and a man that is very passionate about living on your own terms and following your dreams as God intended. Born and raised in Chicago, IL where I currently live, I work in the IT industry but I also blog about topics that are important to people such as motivation, empowerment, love, family and social issues, spirituality, and men’s issues. I am a 6-year U.S Navy veteran where I traveled all over the world in support of the gulf war and the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001. I have a Bachelor of Business from Chicago State University, a Masters of Business Administration (MBA) from Florida Institute of Technology and I am currently working on my Doctorate at Walden University. I have one son, Dean Jr. that I absolutely love and adore and everything I do is about leaving a legacy for him and encouraging him to go out and find what makes life great!
