Can you give our readers some background on your art?
I create and write music. Music is not what I do, it’s who I am. Being a songwriter, you never know who may be inspired by your song. And who you may reach out to that can relate to it. When I write music, it all comes from the heart and is always about life experiences that I myself or someone I know may have been through.

What would you recommend to an artist new to the city, or to art, in terms of meeting and connecting with other artists and creatives?
Support, it’s all about support. If you don’t want to be lonely, you got to start making time to go support other artists at their shows. Being all about you all the time, isn’t going to get you anywhere. Sometimes you just got to set aside some time for others. Stay humble. That is an excellent way to make friends with another artist like yourself.
