Devon earned his Master of Public Administration and holds a B.A. in Psychology. He has over 15 years of experience creating and delivering nationally recognized community programs providing professionals, fathers, youth and families with the tools to become more effective leaders. He has served on various city and statewide councils, committees and organizations that produce grants for non-for profit organizations and improve service delivery.
Adversity has served as his greatest teacher, molding him into the modern leader and loving father he is today. His mother and grandparents raised Devon when his parents divorced in early childhood. His world became shaped and influenced by internalizing the pain of divorce and an absent father who was addicted to drugs; staying on course for success while growing up proved to be challenging.
However, as a young father a shift in perspective and a decision to choose growth over victimization transformed Devon’s life. He began the road to recovering his true self. His keynotes and seminars connect these real life experiences to the power of transformation. Often called “The Connector” because of his unique ability to connect the dots for others, Devon shows participants how they can transform their own challenges into a legacy of leadership, meaning and purpose.
Devon believes that “Fatherhood is one of the highest forms of leadership.” He often says, “Like leadership, fatherhood is not about a position or a title, but rather the opportunity to model for others effective leadership and create a living legacy.” Devon lives in NYC and is a loving father to his three children. His children inspire him daily to create and live his own legacy of greatness.
