The studio 'fixer' who worked closely with the King of Pop for over 15 years and became one of the late superstar's closest confidantes, is stepping out as a public speaker.

He tells WENN, "I plan to take these things that I've observed and lived, these lessons, and I know that there's a demographic of students that don't know what's going on; they don't know what's going on in their lives, they don't know what's going on in the world... 'How do I assemble a path for me...?' and I realise I've had the most unique experience for anyone like me that I can imagine, and this is now what I write about and what I speak about.

"It slowly crept in; I started hearing people speak... and it was like, 'I could do this', and then I started making some friends in the industry and started taking it more seriously."
