amongst wealth and poverty, Marvin's life
was destined to be unlike most young Black
Born in Dallas, TX, Marvin D. Woodard spent his grade school years living between Dallas and San Jose, CA.
Although an excellent student and athlete, Marvin's life off campus
consisted of running the streets and struggling
to find his identity. During his senior year
of high school, Marvin's life was for ever
altered when his fascination with life on
the streets landed him in a court room fighting
for his freedom. Faced with the possiblity of a prison sentence, the overloaded court system of California gave him a second chance. Marvin returned to Dallas where he graduated from Kimball High School.
After returning to California, and working various jobs, including pursuing music
management, Marvin discovered a hidden
passion for writing and design, which
led to his current career as a UX Strategist.
Back in Texas, Marvin now resides with
his wife and 2 daughters.
