In 2021, he chartered the Western Maryland Chapter of the National Association for Black Veterans.
Founding in 2018, Upl!ft was birthed from Dr. X’s idea of a self-leadership development system for Black veterans. By delving into the practices of energetic self-perception and strategic influence theory, he constructed the self-development framework called Strategic Energetic Transition™ which serves as the basis of his unique approach to coaching and speaking.
