Alfonso believes writing helps him reach his max potential. It is his most creative vein and strongest voice. It’s what helps him become anyone he wants to be, and it’s the easiest way for him to understand others as well as the world around him. From growing up underprivileged in Crown Heights, Brooklyn to graduating with a BA in Film & New Media Studies under a full-tuition scholarship, Alfonso’s greatest skill is knowing how to maneuver in both worlds comfortably.

Like many others in the LGBT community, Adrian has struggled in the past to accept himself and find peace in a world that can be full of hatred.

While creating his first novel, Majoring in Me (Acceptance), Tavion developed the site According to T. A blog where people can anonymously go and ask advice about whatever is bothering them. Whether it’s a question about dating, or an annoying best friend, or an aggravating boyfriend, or just about issues that affect the LGBT community, he’s available to offer a distinct opinion. Although he doesn’t profess to be a licensed therapist, a psychologist, or Iyanla Vanzant, he’s a man that has experienced life, and has offered good advice to friends and associates for years. The site is reminiscent of Steve Harvey’s “Strawberry Letter” or the renowned “Dear Abby” column. Check out the blog for yourself at www.accordingtot.com.
