Professional Summary

Friendly and outgoing retail sales professional with strong customer service skills and knowledge of loyalty/rewards programs. Capable of informing customers about those programs and using suggestive selling to increase the average daily sales of the company by any means necessary.

Currently involved in multiple business ventures in the works. A friend and I are launching a multi dimensional project known as BLNX (Balance)and ETC. (Embody through Creation.) These projects are basically based off of different but very similar life experiences of lower class , cultural upbringing and our side of the spectrum of life and how we approach creativity and conquering your own path. Learning to balance all the aspects of life whether good, bad, happy, sad... are all inevitable things that we as beings go through in this circle of life.

These lifelong projects include creativity in all realms such as fashion , filmmaking, photography, designing, modeling, DJ'ing, agriculture work. All in efforts to really bring in the community and to truly build with people of all cultures backgrounds but specifically the Black and LGBTQ communities . Reason being is that these groups need more outlets when it comes to allowing that creative side show and flow. Being a double minority no what the case can be hard growing up in a society such as today where things such as mental health . spiritual health, expression , and reputation are so very important.

All hands on deck GreenHouse in the works for things like fresh fruits ,veggies, flowers, plants, holistic healing herbs. This project will be more catered towards family and the less fortunate due to these communities not being able to get a hold of healthy foods which is why we see things like cancer, diabetes, skin issues, inflammation, abnormal bodily functions ,arise in these more less fortunate areas.
