I turned my life around and I want to start working to help ease my financial difficulties. This will also allow me to start a stronger foundation for my children's future. It will also allow me to give back to my mother and help her with my nieces and their financial struggles. 

I think of myself mostly as a strong provider, who through these tough economic times, has lost my edge and a slight grip on my finances. Which seems to effect my parenting skills towards my children. Being a single father is extremely stressful when I can't provide the things that my children need. 

I live with my mother, my son, and my two nieces. My mother takes care of the bills and I live rent free, but I have to provide and prepare meals for me and my son. 

I'm most proud of my children. My son just started second grade and my daughter has just begun her first year of preschool. They seem to look up to me for everything, and even when I can't provide, they still look to me as the best dad in the world. 

I went to school at Kennedy King College, where I received Phi Theta Kappa National Honors. I've worked at jobs including moving companies, manufacturing warehouses, and doing landscaping.

Something interesting about me is I used to tutor students in math and reading at Kennedy King.
