My Portfolio

I started ghostwriting in 2009 and in that time I have penned hundreds, if not thousands of articles and 15 books.

    Growing Your Own Food is a Revolutionary Act

    Despite the pandemic, the ongoing #JusticeforGeorge protests, casual murders of Black men by police, white supremacists inciting race wars and lynchings in southern California, I continue to preach that one of the most empowering and revolutionary actions we can take is to return to our roots and what we've done for thousands of years: take...
