A native of Washington DC, Rasheed has spent 25 years in the hospitality industry as an operator of Fine Dining restaurants across the country and even in the Caribbean. He’s worked for such companies as The Four Seasons, Marriott and BLT Prime. He is a world traveler having visited over 35 countries in 2019 alone, he brings a level of culture and experience to the table that can not be taught or trained.
Having grown up in home schooling, he quickly found a passion in education and teaching others. Rasheed is a natural leader who knows when to follow to achieve success.
After managing restaurants for 20 plus years, Rasheed decided to write and self publish his first body of work “Hello My Name Is”. An autobiography of life as a gay, black, Muslim growing up in Washington DC in the 80’s and 90’s. His passion for writing soon translated into him writing for others in the forms of blogs and website content.

Today he has over a dozen satisfied clients and has launched a business to continue to help others achieve their goal of location Independence through Extra Hands Virtual Assistants.
