“I believe in the universal connection between all human beings, and I am on the road towards fully comprehending our responsibility towards each other. I like that the performing arts and music in particular, has the power to bring people from different origins and ideologies into the same train of thought. Whether positive or negative, you feel something and that’s what life is about. Living. I appreciate that I have been blessed with the ability to manipulate sound in a way that connects with everyone and brings love and positive energy. I guess one of the hardest things in life to do is, disregard what others may say and think about you and live your life to the fullest without concern. Behind that, I’ve also learned one of the greatest things you can do for another human being. Aspire to Inspire.”
