I have always been creative. When I was a child, my grandfather being obsessed with Bob Dylan’s “Blowin in the Wind,” would ask me “How can you look up and not see the sky?” It provoked me to listen carefully to song lyrics, connect and question them. I wrote my first song at around eight years old, choreographed a dance routine to it and performed with my cousins. “Twist Like a Noodle” was Chubby Checker inspired.
I was comfortable with the stage from early on, as I clogged with The Heart of Dixie cloggers for several years and performed in school plays.
At the age of ten, I asked for my first typewriter and proceeded to fall in love the art of writing. Years passed, and I have explored and expanded my creative side from not only writing but also painting, metal working, and other areas.
I did well in school but chose not to pursue a degree out of high school because I couldn’t imagine doing one thing for the rest of my life. So, it kind of led to this plethora of endeavors.
I have published books, written poems and songs, hosted many events, directed a documentary, and performed on stage singing.
Since music has always been a part of my life, I helped start an open mic night once, interviewed many musicians, wrote about some of them, hosted my own radio show and worked as creative producer of that station, and even co-owned a production studio for a while.
I have an art studio at The Store I own where I make things and sell them, like my book, art, and documentary.
