Introduce Yourself: Hola. More than your average singer, song writer and music producer. I am a 27 year old Chicano-Peruvian artist. My sign is capricorn. Born in El Monte, California and raised throughout Southern California, including: Pomona, Indio, Coachella, Palm Desert, Rialto, San Bernardino, Long Beach and even as far as El Paso, Texas.
Thoughts On People In The World?: My thought on people in the world is that they are getting nicer, I can feel it. But I also feel those in power are getting meaner.
What are your inspirations & goals?: My inspiration is daily fan mail. They, the fans, give me reason to strive further in life, which leads to my goals… My goals are to obtain my masters degree and win a Latin Grammy Music Award or just to be ranked in the Latin Billboard Charts.
How would you impact the world?: My masters would allow me to be a professor in a learning environment for those interested in learning about ethic study courses. My music, lyrics and song writing will impact the world tremendously through sounds, dances and emotions.
Struggles In Life? : My struggles in life consist of racism, segregation and injustice when it comes to police encounters. Being a handsome Latino, better yet Chicano, is a curse and a blessing. Blessing, because I have culture and an identity. However, a curse because it allows room for injustice, segregation, stop and frisk, and injustice.
How do you feel about yourself? Any changes you would make? : I feel social media really changed me. It made me more selfish and decreases my time with family, friends, society and nature in general.
What does love mean to you?: Love to me means, no boundaries.
