During this time frame he was responsible for the entire organization including such activities as strategic planning, marketing, finances, personnel, etc. It was during this time period that he enhanced his management and leadership skills by pursuing his formal education obtaining degrees from Harvard, Wayne State, Michigan State and Walden University. Within this time frame he also shared his expertise and knowledge with nonprofits by being an active member of DESC (Detroit Executive Service Corps) as well as other local non-profits.
