Gender MALE
Occupation Senior HR Administrator

Introduction Xavier’s passion for writing was sparked in his teenage years by teachers who provided him tools to intelligently articulate his thoughts on paper. He was also influenced by the poetry of great Hip Hop artists. He then began writing rap lyrics and poetry and as he entered adulthood included essay writing in his portfolio. For over 10 years he has composed numerous poems and essays covering social issues. Xavier was educated at Baruch College's Zicklin School of Business. However his second and most important education began when he watched interviews of the great African scholars Dr. Ivan Van Sertima, Dr. Yosef Ben-Jochannan, and Dr. John Henrik Clarke on Gil Noble's "Like It Is". Amazed by what they shared about ancient Africa, he began learning all he could about African history. Consequently, he read works of these scholars and several others. Xavier recently completed Runoko Rashidi's online course on the Global African Presence. This year he joined the African Genesis Institute and will sojourn to Kemet as part of the 2012 class. He currently works for The Associated Press as the Senior HR Administrator where he is involved in various aspects of staffing and diversity.
