I possess almost 20 years in Youth leadership in the performing arts and Christian ministry with early beginnings as a choir director at age 14. Since then I have embarked on many journeys as a vocalist, television host, speaker, marketing, media & fine arts coordinator. Perhaps, my notable journey was (and still is) serving in multiple capacities of online branding and art direction for world renowned artists such as; The Clark Sisters, Dr. Kim Burrell, Richard Smallwood, Prof. James Hall, Dr. Ricky Dillard, George A. Pass II, and others. But my most memorable experiences come from holding the role of director/coordinator of multiple choirs; including the LNTCG Youth and Mass Choirs, New Life Music Ministries Tehilla Children Choir (from which spurred Exalt Him Ministries) and the SVG Mass Choir. My background includes instructional, marketing and administrative experience in arts & education. This includes his role as branding coordinator for Dorinda Clark Cole's Singers & Musicians Conference of the Arts, in partnership with the Berklee College of Music. Preceding this role was my tenure at the St. Vincent and the Grenadines Community College, as Lecturer's aid in Accounting and Spanish, and at Montgomery College's Performing Arts Department in marketing & administrative support. I also advocate actively for community service in the arts and this extends into my involvement with Carnegie Hall in New York City as a music ambassador.
In addition to being a member of the American Musicology Society, I hold an Associates in Music from Montgomery College of Rockville, MD and a Bachelors of Music from Columbia University in the City of New York, with a focus on Arts in Education and Black Music. My interests are not just in black music but also in Western Art Music. My classical repertoire includes compositions by Purcell, Scarlatti, Faure, Mendelssohn and Schubert. At Montgomery College, I was section leader and vocal arranger of the Montgomery College Chorus, Chamber Singers and Jazz Ensemble. I was also a vocalist for the MC World Ensemble and co-founded the Montgomery College Gospel Choir and the acapella group B Natural.
