Summary
I am a visionary, self-starter and innovative servant and professional. My goal in life is to teach others to how
to become independent, self-motivated learners...committed to the acquisition of knowledge (which comes
from God) and change, as they lean how to bridge knowledge and wisdom. My desire is for every student (in
the both sacred and secular arena) to realize and grasp hold to their own identity and purpose in life...to teach
them how to work themselves out of a job by being other centered and never giving up.
