Dennis has worked at several Fortune 500 companies, including working as a regional sales manager representing a multimillion-dollar territory within the professional beauty industry. It is through his work experience that he learned to effectively communicate with others and achieve his future goals. At age seventeen, Dennis appeared on seven talk shows, including Larry King Live, and Sally Jessy Raphael, after being a victim of a brutal hate crime that occurred in his high school. It is because of this that he now volunteers as a crisis counselor.
