Sinner. Womanizer. Black Pulp Fiction author. In my spare time I write gritty, street lit novels and short stories about Low Lifes, Criminals, Con Men and Wayward Women Folk (think Donald Goines meets Iceberg Slim meets Chester Himes meets Jim Thompson makes love to Zora Neale Hurston). My hard knock, scrap-filled life has resulted in a standup, one man show loaded with dirty, filthy-mouth, comic observations about the shit I've survived and lived to talk about. Most of my work has been primarily in chitlin-circuit, niteclubs U never heard of. But that's how life made me. Because I've seen too much FILTH as an ex-Homeless, Dishonorably Discharged Air Force Veteran, 2X Divorced, 1X shot denizen of these United Snakes to ever have Pure Thoughts again this lifetime.
