Who was your role model as a child ?

God and my mother. I was raised very poor. My father was an abusive alcoholic my mother taught me the Bible and worked all her life to the day she died of cancer. She raised 6 boys in a two-bedroom duplex. even though there was a lot of struggle in finances and in physical and mental pain she always told us about God of the Bible. My mother told us that we should always follow our dreams B yourself and never hate but love all people even your enemies never judge because that is God's job not ours.

What are your happiest memories ?

I don't want to sound too bad but I don't have the happiest memories I just have good memories. I was very poor as a child and learn to work at a young age 9 years old I believe and I have yet to stop. Don't get me wrong, I do have the norm happy memories like marriage , kids being born, purchasing a house and so on. Nothing sticks out as happiest memories.

Did you always want to be a movie star?

I always wanted to be a businessman I wanted to present myself in the corporation world as a leader. as a kid I used to carry around a briefcase with Monopoly money and simulate myself making big deals. Always created characters and express them out either in front of a mirror or like a monologue out in the open sometimes I created situations using buy GI Joe action figures. When I got older in my teens I started having different dreams. These dreams or more like being in situations that I would get into later in life it's kind of having a Deja Vu feeling that you've been in that predicament before not being in the same place before but in that conversation or in that meeting before? It was like I was being prepared before it happened. since then I've been an entrepreneur and open-minded person to get whatever information is out there to help me succeed and to increase my knowledge. the only thing is that my character me myself always had high energy always wanted to entertain people but at the same time get my point across in a professional manner and the only way to do it is to be in the entertainment business and that moment came years later in my mid-30s

Who is your favorite Actors and Actress now and why?

Jack Nicholson and Harrison Ford. The reason is that their work not only brings out the characters , you feel the emotions of that character to the point you dont see the actors portraying them.

What do you do to chill out?

I don't chill out , but I do take breaks. I socialize with a drink or smoke break THC I must say. But most of the time I'm always building my network.

What is your favorite author / book and why?

Kindra sowder. The reason why is that she's an award-winning independent horror mystery writer and I bumped into her at one at a Comic-Con where I was a guest. I just fell in love the way she Network and connected with people so I picked up one of her books. I fell in love with it where I ended up reading the full series. So I had to connect with her and her and her husband both told me about writing and being an author. of course this got me in the interest of me being an author. So Kendra took one of my unfinished Scripts and created a book that is now becoming a series. Kindra's riding brings in more than just the feeling the excitement and the adrenaline rush in her stories you actually feel that you are there you smell you taste the works.

Tell us about your new exciting projects.

Right now I am waiting on the final edit for a film that I did with scared City Productions in Jonesboro Arkansas. The movie is called Slaughter and it is a horror film. I'm also working on re-releasing with a new cover zombified the Headhunter I just finished writing the second book with Kendra called zombified The Resurrection and we are working on a third book later on as we are dealing with making this a franchise to include a mini series and a graphic novel. I'm also working on a TV show I've written called smoke which is about a half human half ghost paranormal investigator. We will be filming the pilot at Paulding jail in Paulding Ohio. Our intention is to go to haunted facilities all across America and tell the two-story along with r scripted story and growing the popularity in these facilities so they can increase in their revenue to keep the history and the facilities open.
