Meet the Founder

Carmichael Lewis

Carmichael Lewis, a proud Chicago native, grew up as the middle child in a family of three on the Southside of the city. Over the years, he has successfully worn many hats—police officer, published author, entrepreneur, mentor, and real estate investor, but his journey to success was not devoid of hurdles.

Despite facing adversities early in life, including a couple of arrests and academic setbacks, Carmichael never allowed these stumbling blocks to deter his ambitions. Instead, he saw them as steppingstones towards becoming the resilient individual he is today.

With over fourteen years in law enforcement—five of which were served in the Chicago suburbs—Carmichael's commitment to safeguarding his community is unwavering. He holds a master’s degree in public safety administration and an undergraduate degree in Criminal Justice from Chicago State University, further solidifying his dedication to the cause.
