A graduate of the University of Central Florida, Oneil also studied at Eastern Connecticut State University, Yale University and in Edinburgh, Scotland at Queen Margaret University College. Currently pursuing a Master of Arts degree in Mass Communication, Oneil has made public communication and creative expression his specialties. An eternal optimist, Oneil’s faith and personal energies are dedicated to bringing his words to others.
