WHERE I COME FROM
I'm from Greenville, SC. I'm the son of Bernard & Sharon Smith, the wisest folks I know. I have a big little sister named Cassandra who has the cutest dog named Cooper. I was fascinated by Martin Luther King as a child so it was only fitting that I graduated from Morehouse College. There I met my beautiful wife Shun on the library steps and we married on 07/07/07- God's day of completion. We now have 3 little boys, Elijah, Emmanuel, and Ezra. Being there dad is my life and everything I do I do for Shun and the boys. I tell them we groom leaders in this house.
A THRIVING CAREER
My background is in marketing. I received my bachelor's degree from Morehouse in Marketing. I dabbled in marketing and advertising for a while, but most of my work was done in the financial banking industry. After my firstborn child, Elijah was in a terrible car accident that left him in a coma for about four months, I never went back to work. He is the soul of our family. He now suffers from Cerebral Palsy.
After Elijah came home, I started having my visions and started The Wise Men Group, and although it didn't pay anything it kept me busy. I day trade for a living and work as a consultant for GM. What started as a hobby, I'm also a professional photographer. I own www.CelebrityPhoto.co. You can go there to check out my art or read about my son's story at wwwElijahsLife.com
