I was born and raised in Motown by a loving family and community who have always been my greatest influence, inspiration and source of energy. 

I can be this example for my family because shortly after coming out as gay, I found my chosen family, the Gay Men's Chorus of Washington.  After many years of silence, this group of incredible and beautiful people helped me find my voice again.  Not only did they help me find my way back to the stage but they also helped me find my way to me.  GMCW, thank you for your love, acceptance and encouragement.  Without you, I am not sure I would have ever been strong enough to truly step out into the spotlight.  I am stepping out for me, for each of you and for our community.
