Q: How did you get to where you are today? *
A: My story started young at the age of 4 my mother would write me songs and sing them to me until I memorized them. 5 years later at the age of 9, I was writing and freestyling my own songs in my basement. At 12 I was gifted protools for Christmas and from that point on I record 8/9 songs a day until I left home for college. As a popular college athlete, I started throwing parties and performing at my Events.
The buzz helped me sell over 500 hard copy mixtapes on campus. I was later asked to join 2 college tours. After graduating from college, I was featured on the top Philly radio station power 99 and New York’s top station hot97. A few months later I was approached with an opportunity to make music for TV & Film in LA and decided to take a chance. After 2 years of being in LA, my music is now featured on many ads and trailer for brands like Netflix, Xbox, Nickelodeon, Espn, UFC, and more!
