Transparent graduated in 2004 with a Bachelor of Science degree in Child Development. In November 2005 Transparent followed two callings that God had placed on his life: Ministering the gospel through music and starting On Purpose Inc., a non-profit Christian organization that caters to the youth of Contra Costa and Solano Counties. While living in Richmond, CA he was actively involved in volunteer work at the Coronado YMCA and in 2006 he was honored with the “Volunteer of the Year” award from The West Contra Costa YMCA. Transparent currently resides in Vallejo, CA and holds a position with Alternative Family Services as a case manager for foster care and adoption children.

In March 2007 he won the American Christian Talent Search and in June 2007 he participated in the Christian Music Awards (CMA). He has currently released a 19 track mix tape titled “Transparent presents…. Heirs-The Takeback Vol. 1”. In addition, he is working on his debut album which is scheduled to be released in January 2009. Transparent recently returned from a two week multi-city tour in Australia with Freda Mitchell. Year to date, he has ministered at approximately 70 different venues (Churches, Cruises, High Schools, Colleges, Talent shows, and Award shows) and on many occasions he has returned to minister multiple times. Recently Transparent has seized the awesome opportunity to minister at the Solano County Juvenile Hall every Sunday, where he speaks and ministers through music to the youth and guards. Throughout these great accomplishments his focus remains the same, which is to “Advance the Kingdom one second at a time.
