I have always had a strong desire to make a positive social impact in the world. I started with raising funds for animal welfare in grade school and doing volunteer work at homeless shelters and hospice care centers in high school and college. As a lifelong Music student through to high school graduation and going on to study music at Berklee College of Music, I had a good understanding that Music carries huge social impact for good or bad.
In 2015, following the heroin overdose death of a good friend, I started to really see how big the opioid crisis our country faces truly is. It was a massive eye-opener that my circle of friends could be impacted; a circle of kind, loving, and deeply caring people. My friend loved my music so much that his death set my mission in stone. I was going to use my music to affect mental health by providing a safe outlet to suffering in safe environments as far and wide my feet could carry me...
...and so I am.
