I recently had the pleasure of sitting down with Cameron Dorsey and Carlos Reyes for an episode of their thought-provoking podcast, The Blank Sutra. We talked for nearly two hours, exploring a variety of topics that all intersect with me and my music. We touched on how I got into music and chose my path, street life in Northern California, what inspires me and how I write my songs, how my study of economics has influenced my approach and benefited me as a professional artist and musician, and some pivotal moments in my journey.
One of my personal highlights of the episode was when Cameron asked me if I felt like the act of "cutting off that safety net by going out to a land that you're not fully acclimated in and comfortable in" opened the door for some important life-changing experiences and defining moments. This prompted an examination and discussion of how a sense of security can actually sometimes hold us back in life. It's a concept I have observed throughout my life but it really hit home for me in the course of this conversation.
