In one sentence, who are you? I am a black man with hopes and dreams.

Where do you usually sell Groundcover? All over Ann Arbor.

When and why did you start selling Groundcover? I started in 2017 because it was an honest way to make more money and to be among the community.

What’s your favorite thing about selling Groundcover? Selling to new customers; meeting new people.

What is something our readers should know about you? I like to enjoy life, most definitely the sunshine. I use the day as it comes.

What’s the most interesting thing that’s happened to you while selling Groundcover? I met good people that lasted for a lifetime. Good friends!

What change would you like to see in Washtenaw County? I’d like to see people stop judging others and succumbing to bias before they even know the person. And I’d like to see less policing of Blacks and an end to long sentences for small crimes. Washtenaw County is pretty good but in places like Detroit, we need more help for Blacks, especially in low-income school districts.

Is there anything else you’d like folks to know about you? I’m Christian and I believe Jesus Christ died for my sins and I leave it in his hands. I try my best but I do make mistakes. But I try to do the right thing, keep my conscience clean, so I can sleep at night.
