Personal Statement

I was born and raised on the south side of Chicago. I attended Whitney M. Young High School on Chicago’s west side, and Morehouse College in Atlanta, Georgia. Although I was a psychology major at Morehouse, I spent more time studying and preparing for my all-night religion/ philosophy debates with my friends than I did for my psych courses. This affinity for religion and theology served as the impetus for my deciding to attend the Chicago Theological Seminary upon graduation. There, I earned a Master of Divinity degree and am currently completing my Ph.D. in Theology, Ethics and Culture

In the classroom, I like to see myself as a facilitator of learning processes. For me, the classroom should be a hub for meaningful learning experiences, wherein students are challenged, enlightened and invited to be more inquisitive. I absolutely love teaching, which comes second only to spending time with my wife and six children.
