Before, this was filled with all sorts of juicy bits about me and my upbringing. Although I do find it good to share who I am and from where I came, I figure there is a time and place for that – wouldn’t you agree?

As for now just know that I am a creative. I have tried the other labels like artist, photographer, videographer, designer, etc. but they all felt a little too restricting.

I do a multitude of things. One of my favorites things to do, though, is give thanks.

Actually, try this with me right now:
Think about your life as it is in this moment. Think about all you’ve been through and have survived. Think about all the let downs. The days when it seemed you couldn’t pull it together. Think about all of that shit and then look at you now.

You may currently be going through something; join the club, I am too. But you know what, God has got me.

Yup, I said God. I am a believer in a higher power. I do not think that me or we as a species are the end all be all of creation. That type of thinking is simply insane to me.

But the point I’m trying to make is, even though life gets you down at times, you will always bounce back from it. As long as you keep going, you will see a better tomorrow. It is inevitable.

My current situation is kind of fucked — I ain’t even going to lie. Well, it’s not fucked, per se, but that’s only because I see the light at the end of the tunnel. What I’m experiencing now is only the price I have to pay to get to where I really want to be in life. Do you get what I’m saying?

Resistance is the price of growth – of any kind. I am a firm believer in that. Pain, heartache, suffering, all of these conditions are a tell-tale sign that something good is about to come to us. But – and this is a strong but – it only happens that way if we go through the pain with a positive attitude knowing that the best is yet to come.

I believe that the moment you think it’s too hard and you throw in the towel, is the moment you lose. You can’t build muscles when you aren’t willing to lift the weight. And metaphorically, your weights are all those trying things in your life.

Don’t quit. Shit will get better. Trust.

I know this was supposed to be a bio. Maybe someday soon I’ll do a proper one. But for now, this is it. The spirit came over me and this is the message you’re supposed to receive. I hope it helps in whatever way you need it to.
