About

I am a Morehouse College History Major with a minor in Africana Studies, originally from Pasadena, California. I moved to Atlanta in 1996. From a young age I have loved politics and history. I am currently employed at the Atlanta History Center a position I have held for 5 years, but have been involved in the history field for much of my life. My passion is Military history, African-American history and history of the African Diaspora. In my free time I am a re-enactor and living historian for time periods that include, American Civil War, Indian Wars, Spanish-American War, WWI, Spanish Civil War, and WWII. I have a passion for genealogy, and have traced my family history back to the late 1700’s.  My interest in family history has made me an active member and Camp Commander of the Atlanta chapter of the Sons of Union Veterans. I recently received word that I will be honored on September 16th by the City of Atlanta for my contributions to preserving African-American history and culture through my living history programs.
