After 40 years no longer a wide-eyed 20 something, the vision of bringing unappreciated and novel "human" stories to life from a "black" perspective still burns bright. His motto: Carpe Diem...Don't Sweat the Small Stuff, 'Cause It's All Small Stuff. His Goal: Enlighten, Inform, Entertain & Inspire audiences worldwide. He is the driving force behind Gavin Media NU World, the author of The Autobiography of Obsidian Dumar, a novel and the forthcoming Blackface TV: From Amos ‘n Andy to Empire. Currently in development on a feature documentary, Free Your Mind... Your Ass Will Follow, an examination of how anti-“black” bias still drives popular culture and political discourse despite the push toward greater diversity and the need for different strategies to institute real, positive and lasting change.
