Brief Description of self: A scatterbrained spacey dreamer always ready to experiment at every opportunity.

Long Description of self: I’ve always been an artist of some sort my entire life. I started out drawing as a child being heavily supported by my great uncle who was quite the talented artist himself and owned his own print shop. I then moved on to writing poetry and was actually honored once to have a poem of mine published. From there I started writing possible lyrics to Hip Hop songs and soon began collecting vinyl records and DJing house parties before being tapped by a friend to be the performing DJ of his Hip Hop group at various clubs in DC. I had also started producing my own music while serving as the group’s performing DJ and eventually wrote, produced, and even performed my own music with this group before briefly becoming a completely new group with 2 of the 3 members. Since then I’ve formed 2 other HipHop groups & released music on a Scottish Independent Music Label as well as independently on my own with my most recent endeavor having been nominated for a Washington Area Music Award(Wammie) back in 2019/2020. I do presently have another album I am gearing up for release, but my main efforts now are almost exclusively on my audiovisual work creating what I call #beatshorts as I continue to progress my video editing skills along with my music production in preparation for my eventual goal of creating my own animated short films that I will score and animate all on my own.

Project Details: My latest release will be called theFRINGEcafe. It will be a sort of anthology type LP consisting of new songs from 2 previous groups I was in as well as songs from a new group I’ve formed and some new solo songs from myself to round out the project.

Medium & why: Music because that was originally the only medium I was creating with until semi-recently.

Favorite part of the creation process: The solitude of hiding in my basement creative space unearthing whatever piece of myself ready to come forth.

The most challenging part of the process: My extremely scatterbrained nature and the idea of how I will apply my creations to a practical use.

Inspiration: A great need to escape.

Other creative influences: Animation & Film Making

Testimonial: Never allow reality to limit your mind & the places it can take you.

How creativity betters my life: It is the best tool I have to maintain my sanity & allow myself some sort of truly fulfilling internal happiness in the dark times we all find ourselves in these days.

Advice to other aspiring artists: Never follow the trends set by other artists or the mainstream, just always remain true to yourself first & foremost with everything you create.

Advice to other aspiring artists: There are going to be a million people who tell you that your art is bad, that it won’t go anywhere, that your wasting your time, you’ll get the looks and the weird smiles when you try to explain your creative process to people, you’ll get the friends who are there to support you but don’t take the time to understand and listen to the components one of YOUR pieces takes…
