“I seek to authentically integrate and activate my research, teaching, and service in the community-based spaces that matter most to those I serve, teach, and lead — spaces like neighborhoods, barbershops, churches, and athletic environments are as valuable to me as traditional classrooms.

“In October 2016, I released my latest book, “Border Crossing Brothas: Black Males Navigating Race, Place, and Complex Space.”

“I have an amazing family. I have been happily married for over 10 years, and my sons are healthy and happy young men. It was pretty cool to co-write a book about marriage and family with my wife too.

“I have two books and an audio book to finish in 2017. I plan to achieve this by getting up early to write and staying balanced.”
