"Art is our left brain taking us to places that gives us wonderful experiences and takes us on incredible journeys.
Art has no boundaries of rich or poor and has been with us since the beginning of man.
I have dedicated my whole life to music and creativity. It has given me the chance to spread it’s word and I am so fortunate that I can do so."
