Thank you so much for joining us! Can you tell us a story about what brought you to this specific career path?
I have always had a passion for music. I just have recently begun pursuing this as a career because prior to that, I played basketball at the University of Hawaii which was my main focus. I began recording music in college but have moved to New York City to network with the right people in order to take my career to the next level.
Can you share the most interesting story that happened to you since you started doing this?
I have recently become a verified artist on Spotify, and my music was streamed in 13 countries on Spotify alone in 2019.
Which tips would you recommend to your colleagues in your industry to help them to thrive and not “burn out”?
I would suggest continuing to stay determined and don’t let any obstacle or negativity discourage you from what you are trying to pursue. You have to believe in yourself before anyone else can believe in you.
None of us are able to achieve success without some help along the way. Is there a particular person who you are grateful towards who helped get you to where you are? Can you share a story?
My crew GMC has definitely helped me get this far and will continue to help me as I look to achieve way more in the future. We are a collective of artists, producers, photographers who all linked up together in college. To see how far we’ve come in so little time is very exciting, but we also want to achieve so much more moving forward.
How have you used your success to bring goodness to the world?
I think my story in both basketball and music can be inspiring to others who may be overlooked in their respective fields. I went from Walk On athlete to a scholarship player and team captain in basketball. I also went from unknown and inexperienced artist to someone that is gaining respect and support from listeners all around the world.
Do you have a favorite “Life Lesson Quote”? Can you share a story of how that was relevant to you in your life?
Hard work beats talent when talent fails to work hard. I had to work my way up when I arrived at college in order to achieve my dreams on the basketball court. Now that is what I’m doing within the music.
