My work combines:
Music

Being Creative

Day to Day

I wake up, drink coffee, eat breakfast, meditate, then begin recording songs. I may make a music or fashion friday video that day for YouTube, make and design some jewelry, or do an event. I sell my hand made jewelry at flea markets, and night life events. I am currently working Halloween Horror Nights at Universal Studios Hollywood as a performing day job until my music and jewelry can support me completely.

Advice for Getting Started

Here's the first step for high school students

Knowing that wherever you're starting, you get better with hard work, and persistence. Persistence is key because it doesn't matter where you start but where you end up. If I had quit 3 or 4 years ago because my first songs didn't explode on the music scene, I wouldn't have songs coming out in a movie next year or have my first single out on iTunes right now. Hard work, persistence, confidence, and fearlessness.
