I have been
Riding Motorcycle

Gaston, a motorcycle mechanic in Togo introduced me to the world of big motorcycles. But my uncle Faustin was the one who introduced me to riding his scooter. I’ve fall inlove with motorcycle since then.

I like to think that I'm an experienced rider.

I ride about 1000 miles/month

Safety is key

I always wear my helmet and full gears to protect myself. I have two beautiful daughters to return to.

Every mile for education

In November 2022, I suffered my third stroke. It all started back in 2019 with headaches that led to a diagnosis of hypertension. Despite my best efforts, my health took a turn for the worse during the pandemic. In August 2021, I found myself in the ICU with chest pain caused by Congestive Heart Failure (CHF). After undergoing heart surgery at Dallas Presbyterian, I resolved to take control of my health by adopting a healthier lifestyle.

But fate had other plans. Last November, I was back in the ICU with another stroke, and that's when I found out that my kidneys had deteriorated due to hypertension and CHF. As I lay in my hospital bed, I realized that I needed to make a change. I gave myself 90 days to recover and decided that I wanted to give back to the world that had given me so much.

Determined to give back to the world, I decided to radically change my life and build a STEM school in Togo-West Africa as a way of showing gratitude for the blessings and opportunities I have had in my life. Despite my own personal struggles, I felt called to do something big and make a meaningful impact.

Now my mission is to turn a personal challenge into a collective opportunity for change. As a passionate motorcyclist, I am driven to make a difference in the lives of others, and I believe that education is the key to a better future. Despite my many health conditions, I am committed to organizing a ride that will raise funds for a school in West Africa. My goal is to empower children in need with the gift of education, enabling them to create a better life for themselves and their families. Through my ride, I hope to inspire others to join in this mission, proving that even the most difficult obstacles can be overcome with determination and a sense of purpose. Join us on this journey, and let's ride for a brighter tomorrow. Through my work as the IT director for PTAA, I have seen firsthand the benefits a STEM education can provide. I purchased 1.4 acres of land in Togo-West Africa with the intention of using it for personal and family purposes but have now decided to donate it and build a STEM school on that site.

As a 38-year-old with three major health conditions, some might say my plan to raise money for the school by riding a motorcycle is crazy. But to me, it's a powerful way to take control of my life and make a difference in the world. In April, I received clearance to travel again and embarked on my quest to raise funds for the school through my motorcycle ride.

I hope that my journey inspires others to act, no matter the obstacles they face, and join me in supporting this worthy cause. Together, we can create a brighter future for the children of Togo-West Africa through the power of education.  I hope you will follow my journey and help me make this school a reality. Every mile I ride will be for education, and every donation will make a difference.
