Tell us a little about you(your background and how was it like)?
I grew up in Mississippi and moved to South Korea for high school. My parents got jobs working at the school. I spent my four high school years in Seoul with my two younger siblings. I always enjoyed music, watching movies, and reading as a kid and throughout school.
What are the bad things you see on social media?
There is a lot of nothingness circulated throughout the media. It’s numbing. People get stuck in a loop of scrolling through information without context and naturally learn to accept the biases presented to them through conditioning.

This is the main thing I don’t enjoy about social media.

What are the hardships you go through?
I struggle with finding people I connect with, I allow myself to live in isolation. I kind of just assume that no one around me gets me, which isn’t true; they’re just hard to find. My main difficulty is finding people that care as much as me about the same things. I usually wait for people to come to me, which isn’t good. I should work on that.
What are your goals in life?
I will be someone who reflects on the human experience through music and film. I want to be influential in that way. I want to leave a legacy of art behind that can affect people, in the same way people like Jim Morrison did, like Frank Ocean or Christopher Nolan will. I want people to remember the things I create and it be able to remind them of certain things in their life, like a summer or a first girlfriend. That’s what I hope to achieve.
What would you do if you could change the world?
Hm. I’m not sure if I’d change it…

Maybe a universal income in order to eliminate a lot of the needless suffering through starvation and other problems poverty creates.

Maybe I’d make people more understanding, less fear based.

I’m not sure.

Are you happy in the position you are now in life?
Well right now I’m imagining the future. I know I’ll get there eventually, just need to put myself in the correct positions, work on the correct things. But no, right now I’m not exactly where I want to be.

There’s a lot of loneliness, a lot of questioning.

But I understand that this is a stepping stone. A rung in the ladder. I understand what I’ll be in the future.

What questions would you like me to make next for the new interviees coming to the website?
Hm. When was the last time you felt loved?

The last time you experienced love.

That’d be a good question.
