Let Me Introduce You

Many people come into our lives each and every day. Some you just have one brief encounter with and never see again, while others become an important part of your life and you know they will always be a part of it.

I'm sure you all have noticed by now that there has been a link added on the right side of this blog to Steven E. Gantt's website. Steven is an actor/model/clothing designer/philanthropist, who I have had the extreme pleasure of not only meeting, but calling my friend.

I want to take a minute to really introduce you to Steven. I know you can easily see him on TV or Google his name to read more about him, but I want to tell you about the Steven that I know and honestly adore. . .

The thing that strikes me the most about Steven is his genuine personality, his dedication to every project he partners with and his extreme caring for those in his life. I cannot begin to tell you how supportive he is of ME and how much that means to me.

In a recent interview, he was asked what his "dream job" was. I didn't know what to expect the answer to be, but what I read was absolutely humbling,

"Oddly enough its not so much a job per se, but I am the eternal rooter for the underdog. Life, as you all know (hopefully) is hard enough just on the day to day – minus all of the external bs that comes and goes into our lives. Sometimes people just get stuck in a rut or are dealt a crap hand in life and heck if I can in some way help them better their lives, then THAT seems to be something worth leaving behind when we die. So it's not a dream job, it's just the mark I want to leave on the world. My job as is is most men’s dream job but life should have more meaning than what you do for work – it's about character and who you are that defines you."

If you follow this blog, you know I talk a lot about fashion and style and recently delved into the realm of men's fashion with this fashion 101 guide for men. Steven, to me, is the epitome of what a well dressed man should be. He is in the process of launching his own clothing and cologne line that will be called Jagger (Named after his son). I know that this line is destined for greatness and I cannot wait to highlight it on I Look Good Today.

If the clothing line wasn't enough to keep him busy, Steven is working on bringing to life his own non-profit called BaBa – Building a Better America. When he first told me about BABA I was floored with the idea. . .I loved it! In a nutshell (You can read more about the details here), he will be assisting the unemployed with housing to help them get back on their feet. Our country is in such a state of turmoil. Our neighbors need our help, and thanks to Steven's efforts, they will get it.

I have met a lot of people in my lifetime. Steven is a person that never ceases to amaze me. He always has a word of encouragement for me, he makes me laugh and he undoubtedly has the biggest heart of anyone I know.

I strongly encourage you to check him out at the links below. You will be glad that you did!!!


P.S. Check out what Steven wrote about me in his blog post today here.
