Books and Courses


Writing, Teaching, Coaching


To help you achieve self-mastery and make positive contributions to your communities, I write, teach, and coach. For the specifics of how I do this work through diversity, equity, inclusion, accessibility, health, wellness, belonging, and justice lenses, read the extensive bio below or click Products and Services.


I am an associate professor in the Education Enhancement Department at the American University of Antigua College of Medicine, where I teach classes in diversity, equity, inclusion, accessibility, and learning strategies. I conduct research, advise medical students, collaborate with committees, and facilitate special programs. My duties also include serving as the Faculty Advisor to the Black Men in Medicine, AUA Running Club, AUA Fit Club, and the Doctors for Christ student organizations. In the community, I lead classes in Capoeira's movements, music, and culture. 

While living in Mexico, Peter Lang Press published my first book. On May 18, 2018,  Critical Race and Education for Black Males: When Pretty Boys Become Men hit bookshelves and Amazon carts. It received several positive reviews about the importance of my work in helping Black males reach their potential. 


In 2019, my second book, Capoeira, Black Males, and Social Justice: A Gym Class Transformed, became available. It illustrates my teaching and mentoring experiences with Capoeira, Chicago schools, and culturally responsive curricula. This book received notable reviews for its potential to shape physical education programs in under-resourced communities. 


I self-published my 2021 titles, Dear Brother: 82 Powerful Poems to Guide Your Journey to Healthy Black Masculinity, Island Capoeira: The Guide to Growth in Isolation, and The Why Manifesto: A Guide to Help You Discover Your Why and The Manifesto of Why I Write. An E-book is available for free when you subscribe to my site. 

I received several awards, grants, and fellowships for my teaching, academic accomplishments, and commitments to community service. This list includes the AUA Excellence in Teaching and Academic Advising Award, Honoring Our Professor’s Excellence Award, the Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Scholarship, the Diversifying Faculty in Higher Education fellowship, the African American Studies Departmental Award, and the American Sociological Association/National Science Foundation's Fund for the Advancement of the Discipline Award.  


Humble roots...


I am the only son of my parents' six children. My father is a church pastor, and my mother has a background in social work and music. From cosmetology to government gigs, my sisters are engaged in meaningful work that provides for their families and improves communities. 

In Chicago, I had ample opportunities to remain in the United States. Together, with my wife and three children, we chose an unconventional path. In 2016, between July and September, we donated, sold, and gave away many of our possessions to downsize our 3200-square-foot home to 10 suitcases. This move was the start of La Vida Lindsay, a YouTube channel dedicated to documenting our lives abroad and demonstrating the possibilities of thinking outside of the box. 


On October 15, 2016, my wife and I moved from the United States to live in Mexico with our children to pursue our life’s callings as mindful partners, parents, and entrepreneurs. Relocating to Mexico, was not an easy decision because three years earlier I started work as a Postdoctoral Fellow in Teaching and Mentoring with the Honors College at the University of Illinois at Chicago.

As an Honors College fellow, I taught undergraduate students in courses that explored critical issues in race, gender, and social inequalities. I also advised students on course selection, graduate education, career choices, and entrepreneurial ventures. My responsibilities also included serving as the co-director for the Chicago Signature co-curricular initiative.

Final bio highlights

While I lived in Chicago, I pushed the buttons of insanity by trying to achieve success as a husband, father, professor, community organizer, and business owner. My work had its rewards, but it required that I spend long hours away from home while also continuing to struggle to meet my family's needs. Moving abroad helped me uncover intrinsic forms of success. 

Through various media outlets, my family's story has been shared with others. You can find my articles on the Good Men ProjectEntrepreneurThrive Globaland Addicted2Success sites. My wife is an online contributor for CNBC. Together with our three children, we appeared in season two, episode sixteen, of Home and Garden Television's (HGTV) Mexico Life

I live in Antigua and Barbuda with my wife and three children.
