What was the moment that changed your world ?
One was when i experienced the energy of hardcore punk music in my teenage years.
Where in the world is your physical and spiritual home ?
Because of how I grew up I don’t have a physical home in a traditional sense. My longest stay has been NYC so far. My spiritual home is anywhere and everywhere as I try to pray without ceasing. The ocean and the mountains are a grand sanctuary as well as a lonely alleyway.
What does the world need now ?
An urgency to see what the world needs now.
Who and what rocks your world ?
Passionate and genuine people and always good music.
How do you use the world to inspire your creative process?
It never stops inspiring me. The duty is to have a clear mind and heart and eyes to receive it properly and justly. And question how can I inspire more people?
