Born in Natchez, Mississippi. I grew up in a typical southern environment, not unlike that depicted by the writings of Mark Twain. I always felt I was different, and knew that Natchez was no place for someone with my charm, wit and personality. By the age of 19, I was married with three children, working a full time job and attending the University of Southern Mississippi. I knew what I wanted to do with my life, but had to put my dreams on hold. Even with the pressures of a family at such a young age, I graduated with a degree in Computer Science and have had a successful career in sales.
I moved to Memphis, Tennessee in 1991. In the mid 1990’s before the term “wigger” was ever coined, I was consumed by gangster rap, and related to the struggle of young black men trying to leave the ghetto. After all, I was in the Mississippi white trash ghetto only ten years before. Through my love of gangster rap I met Markey Grandberry, and offered my services as an unpaid manager for his rap career. Later, he and his cousin started the company, “Mo Money Taxes” based in Memphis, and I became a featured character in all of their television commercials.
Fast forward another ten years and here I am, with the time, energy and desire to finally fulfill my dream of being in front of the camera or on stage, full time.
