1. What is something not too many people know about you?
I think that not too many people know that I enjoy cooking a lot. Aside from the health benefits, cooking is a really relaxing and therapeutic time. Obviously, you get to make some bomb food, but for me, it’s a time to just listen to music and step away from media for a little bit. Every week, I find myself trying new ways to cook food, prepare food, and re-make food that you see on TV. I don’t watch too much Food Network, but I have found a whole bunch of videos that still helped, and sparked new interests.
2. What are your biggest passions or hobbies?
My biggest passions revolve around creativity – music, dance, and food. I mostly find myself digging through music nearly my whole entire day, finding sounds and grooves that really resonate with me. Of course I like hip-hop, but I like more than that, and I think there’s a wave of music that is yet to be discovered. I’ll spend my days making countless playlists, some that I never finish, and some that just click with what I’m trying to put together. There are even times where I’m so focused and high on the music discovery, that I lose track of time around me, and before I know it, it’s the end of the day. I used to dance competitively, and though I still love to do it, there isn’t a competitive aspect to it anymore. So instead, I do it for the fun and love of the craft. Without these two elements in my life, I don’t know what kind of person I would be.
3. What are your goals for the future?
Right now, I’m focused on everything I can do now, with the power I have now. In the future, I definitely want to work towards a legacy that I can leave behind. I love being able to share with people, and see happiness spread around, but there’s also no greater joy knowing that you have the power to do it. So, other than my financial ambitions, I want to find a way to unite people to share a common love, whether that be the music, dance, or something else completely. It would be mad dope to have a home-base that I can invite friends and family over to, so we can all kick it, be creative, and have a space to call our own. The energy and excitement I get from that kind of drive – there’s nothing else like it.
4. What is your definition of success?
My definition of success can change, because you can always fail too. Something that I’ve been learning over the past couple years, is that it’s okay to fail. Failure is what drives success in the first place. If you ask me what success is, then simply put, it’s the result of learning from your mistakes. The “perfect” image is so heavily sought that people tend to forget to be themselves. Nobody’s perfect, that’s for sure.
5. Tell us something about the projects you're working on.
The first project I’m working on is a travel project, although, you can also call them vacations. I want to travel internationally at least once a year, with several out-of-state trips too. I want to see what the world is like, and I can’t do that from behind my computer screen. Right now, I am working on a music project, but I don’t want to give away too much. However, I can say that I’m moving in a direction where I think I’ll be the happiest. I’m trying to play with some different ideas right now, but it’s still in draft mode, and I have to experiment with things I don’t know I’ll like. In the meantime, I’m just trying to connect with creatives and grow my network, and help connect those who can help each other grow. Once I’m confident in project, then I would love to share more! Oh yeah, when I’m not being creative and taking a break, you can catch me playing some video games too. Games are always fun – it’s the small things.
