It’s important to empower our youth with experience, strength and hope to encourage them to follow their dreams. Everyone has a purpose as to why they are on this planet! Mine is to play music and allow for others to express their passion through my music.I try to do something kind for a stranger every day! Compassionate, Straight Forward. I enjoy making people smile. A go getter. Constantly on the Grind. A DRIVER not a passenger. A leader, not a follower. A problem solver, not a problem maker. Kind, serious, humorous A true Capricorn.Tomorrow is not guaranteed. I live every day as if it were my last. Favorite quotes: “We are the source.” Joe Jones RIP. “If anyone among us is perfect, let them cast the first stone.” Jesus Christ.”
