I know it’s been a minute since I’ve posted for ya’ll and I apologize.. Things have been kinda crazy with my move in LA and I am only have the chance to settle into my place to get situated. For those who may not know from my previous posts, there’s quite a massive shift happening in personal and work life at the moment. My parents will be moving to Georgia in less than two weeks, and I have made the decision to stay in LA for numerous reasons. The first, to learn how to be independent both mentally and financially and second, to broaden/explore my opportunities within the music industry. I am so super passionate about music that it’s really hard for me make decisions only because I truly believe that my future belongs within the realm of music. I’ve made a fair share of sacrifices to keep me grounded in my passion and pursuit for music that at this point, I can’t afford to back down only because I have invested so much time and energy and money on my dream. I have plenty of ideas and plans that I am so eager to tackle here in LA, that I feel as though my opportunities are endless. While Summer 2019 is in full fledge, I also feel that this moment is the beginning of something so new and real to me that I can’t wait to see it manifest in the upcoming future. Can’t wait to share them with ya’ll. Thank for your time ya’ll.
As you guys may or may not know, I really like to create art.
Lately, I’ve entertained the idea of some day selling some of my art work whether that be a full on portrait, drawings, or simple sketches. You can find some of my art work here. If ya’ll would be interested in seeing more art work, and perhaps purchasing some please let me know. I will definitely be making more time to create and I really can’t be anymore excited. Please let me know or simply like this post so I have some what of an idea!
much love, much peace
Just thought I’d drop in and leave some pictures for ya’ll to check out for those who haven’t yet checked out my Photography page, especially for those looking for inspiration. I know for me, at least, I haven’t found much photography inspiration maybe since my mind’s kinda been occupied with work and all, but I guess this is just a reminder for myself and for others to not lose that inspiration/ creative spark. For me it’s been an on-and-off relationship between me and art.. but I definitely plan to become more consistent especially for 2019. Really hone in on my talents, passions, and creativity. When I was 18, I decided to create a VSCO account where I can store my collections of photos throughout the years. For me, growing up, photography was more than just photos, but a way of expression, a way to capture a particular moment in a particular mood.. if that makes any sense. Anyway, I hope this could better convey what I am trying to see. Feel free to check out my VSCO account here for more pictures, this particular series is called the “Three-Piece Series”.
Hope to share more with ya’ll very soon, as I am planning a big road trip vacay very soon.
Peace & Love,

what would you guys considered as “gifted“? what is your criteria for someone who is gifted?
I know this may sound like an odd question to ask, but I ask this question out of genuine curiosity as I am sure that everyone may have their own interpretation/ definition of how they define someone to be gifted or even someone who simply has a “gift”. We, or especially in my experience I see a lot of these terms such as “gifted” or “talented” to be thrown around in the public especially when it comes to certain abilities that are subjective like the arts/ music. But I would like to put this up for discussion and just to see it from others’ perspective. Hopefully this post may also aid you in any questions you might happen to have on this subject as well. To make it simple, what is your own personal telltale signs of someone who may have a “gift”.
Comment below, can’t wait to hear ya’ll responses ~
100 Followers! It’s crazy how time flies it feels just like yesterday when I first created this blog.. I I know it’s been quite a long time coming but I really don’t know how I could’ve gotten my blog to where it is without your support. Your constant feedback, whether it be a like, visit or comment, is what pushes me to keep going. You know I always have ya’ll in my mind in terms of what my next move will be. Still got a lot going in the works and I can’t wait to keep growing this little baby blog of mine with ya’ll. Your support means more than you think. Here’s to a 100 && counting!
Til next time,
much love & peace
As I promised ya’ll, I have a new piece I just cooked up. I have yet to record it, but just jotting thoughts and ideas down was a huge step for me. And one I have been looking forward to sharing with ya’ll. Though not huge, it definitely helped to get my creative juices flowing again. This particular piece is a message for those heads are always above the clouds, but their feet always grounded. Life can be full of distractions when one isn’t focused on their goals and ambitions. And life is short one could potentially get carried away and before they know it, the void that they try to fill with trivial things is still very much there. For me at least this was my case, I can’t speak for everybody. Music for me truly helps to fill some of that void. This is for those who live everyday fighting for their dreams, keeping that fire alive and believing in themselves to make it happen.

♪ sittin’ here, watchin’ the sun go down
went through your phone, saw shit I shouldn’t have found
listen, I know it’s all a game and
I ain’t about to lose
I’m only getting started
we both know I ain’t no fool
tell me what I want to hear
got any hope, any dreams, your fears
none of that crap that don’t mean a thing
like that superficial shit that only end in a fling
look can’t let nobody fuck with my ways
for me, there’s so much to lose so much in stake
I know I ain’t no accident
I was born with a purpose
something the anxiety over take me
then I just gotta wake up & focus
this music thing suppose to be a reminder
I was born for something great
I don’t listen to the doubt
never paid attention to the hate
I pay respect to the legends— the cream of the crop
gotta stay winning, gotta make it to the top
wherever I go, I leave my mark
bout to show them the light.. gotta free ’em from the dark ♪
Music frees me, & that’s all I know.
Thanks for reading ya’ll.
