Originally for Las Vegas (Sin City) relocated to Fort Worth because I enjoy the southern hospitality. I am a lover of music mainly oldies, blues, and hip-hop. I have a passion for inspiring others to reach for their dreams. As I continue to reach for mines. I am currently working a Masters of Science in Psychology. Don’t look for me in my past I don’t live there anymore!!
Lost dreams awaken and new possibilities arise!!
