“A powerful speaker…your speech hit the ball out of the park. You made some excellent points, while successfully balancing humor, challenging your audience and educating them. I look forward to making your acquaintance on a lot of other issues related to family and marriage.”

Cheryl Wetzstein,
Columnist “On the Family”

Panelist/Speaker, Congresswoman Norton’s Forum at the Congressional Black Caucus, 2009: “Single Women, Unmarried Men: What Has Happened to Marriage in the Black Community?”

“Your expertise and knowledge on the subject of marriage and the Black family was greatly appreciated for our forum. The congresswoman needed an expert and an African American male to talk about the subject of marriage and why African Americans are opting out of marriage.

You captivated the audiences’ attention with your stories about the Obama’s and the Clinton’s, and also completely engaged them with questions about how Black men view Black women and vice-versa, and how to respect each other so that we learn to create win/win situations that will help our marriages work.

It was pleasure working with you on our CBC forum, and we will definitely call upon you for speaking engagements involving marriage and families in the future.”

Dionne Calhoun, Legislative Associate
Office of Congresswoman Eleanor Holmes Norton
Keynote Speaker at the University of Maryland:
