As many of you may have noticed I graduated from high school last May. Graduating from high school put me on the path full time to pursue my music. May also marked the release of my newest single titled American Wild. If you listen to the lyrics of the song you may notice I am speaking about myself! "American Wild" is full of energy, sass and a bright out look on life; which pretty much describes me. With the consent of my parents I am taking a gap year from "higher education" and am enjoying all the "on the job" training I can get.
I call my first OJT course #Dreams & #Intuition. Some of the challenges of this course are not being weighed down by problems, focus on being lead by my dreams, the intuition to make wise business-career decisions and act on them. Dreams offer one a self motivating energy but need to be rooted in reality. Intuition is that inner voice speaking dreams into existence. I am a big advocate of goal setting which keep my…
I recently was asked in an interview: Who am I most influenced by with my music?
This is a tough question to answer as I am
literally influenced by ALL MUSIC GENRE’s.
There is no one artist whom I have patterned myself after, in fact, that is
the last thing I want to do. I may have started this journey at a young age but

Chainsmokers I think you get the ide…
I think most of you who read this will agree, we all waste alot of time. Some big stealers of our time include not listening to wise advice, waiting on that "ideal" moment, letting your feelings of being Non-confident keep you from taking action, not giving yourself enough credit for what you have done right, letting another whole day go by without doing one item on your "to do" list. I am sure if I keep thinking I could add many more items to this list!
So my friend I am giving you a shove...... Go have a great day! don't wait, just get up and get moving!
Rethink applying some of the wise advice recently given to you, don't let feeling uncomfortable or unsure of yourself allow you to lose an opportunity.... , give yourself credit for what you have accomplished... get going on that bucket list, NOW! I am preparing for a 9 day trip the first of January to Los Angeles. I am nervous, I am not feeling so confident, I am feeling unqualified for th…
