I was born and raised in New Orleans, Louisiana. At three years old, I started listening to the legendary Michael Jackson, including others such as: Ray Charles, Stevie Wonder, James Brown, Babyface, Sam Cooke, Gerald Levert and many others. I decided to dedicate my time by participating in talent shows and even join local R&B/Hip-Hop duos and trios. I started writing poetry, short stories and even a novel at the age of twelve. When I turned fourteen, all of a sudden, I developed quite an interest in acting and filming; however, I wasn't completely sure if that was something I wanted to do. Subsequently, for a school project, I wrote my first screenplay. I remember calling it"War of the Music Genres" . It became a moderate success back in high school and as a result, I participated in musicals and short films. In 2005, Hurricane Katrina, one of the most costliest and deadliest hurricanes in the history of the United States, forced my family and I to abandon our home and evacuate to Texas. For several months, we became homeless. It was one of the worst encounters of life that I have ever witnessed. I was in a dark place as if my life was over. All of my work in poetry, music and acting were completely destroyed. I prayed endlessly daily after realizing that I was beginning to lose hope. In 2006, it was a new atmosphere I had to adjust myself to. A new school, new friends and a new beginning. After meeting a football player who owned a home recording studio, he let me record my first song and as of now, it had over 6,000 plays on MySpace, when the website was very popular. After receiving a lot of feedback, my habit of creating more music has gotten me over a total number of 21,000 plays on MySpace and over 15,000 views on YouTube. Even numerous musicians and independent record labels contacted me. After experiencing and learning the basics and characteristic of entertainment, I established my own home recording studio. Year after year, I've made incredible progress with my craft and seeking even more opportunities to pursue a career in music and film. As of now, I am looking to get my degree in music/audio production.
