His father was incarcerated, he missed 60-90 days of school annually from 4th to 9th grade, he dropped out of school at age 14, and he lived in 26 places by age 16. Now he is an author, a Ph.D. candidate, a faithful husband, doting father, a pilot, and one of the most inspiring speakers you will hear in your life.

What Others Are Saying

Your presentation is the best we ever had in Miller Place (as one of the sages here, I agree). One of our Board of Education member’s son (a senior at the high school) came home and raved about your presentation. She almost fell off her chair that her son wanted to talk to her about something from school. Your impact was quite prolific.

What Others Are Saying

My class has changed forever! I am reading your book to my students and they love it. I also took your advice. I told my students that I really didn't know them, and that I was truly sorry for not acknowledging their cultures. We have become much closer and the behavioral problems have slipped away. You are a Rock Star! Your new pal Deac.
