Jeff’s marriage in 2001 changed his life and it marked the end of a very important phase in life what he calls “solo development”. He lives with his wife and son in South Florida. In 2004 he wrote and produced the award winning movie Gold Digger Killer that received critical acclaim both in the Hip Hop community and the greater society. The movie told the story of a college student who decided to date a man for his money that later rapes her. In 2005 he presented his Hip Hop Dating Codes, which were endorsed by Hip Hop Culturalist KRS-ONE. Jeff tells stories of why not having a date kept him from going to his High School Prom, the 3 years in his late 20’s he spent celibate and how he avoided the lure of playing women. It is these experiences, which gives him the ability to reach students and other single people and give them empowering advice. Jeff is a leading voice of Hip Hop reform and dating as a precursor to marriage.
