I was born…

August 12 1988… Triple Leo!

My favorite thing about Arizona…

I like things hot.

I’m listening to…

YEEZUS! And some trap and new disco.

My family…

is so supportive! Crucial for my success!!

If I could have dinner with anyone, it would be…

my future self and ask him how he became so successful! Ok, probably Kanye West, Grant Morrison, Joseph Campbell, Michio Kaku or Amanda Bynes.

One thing I cannot live without…

my laptop and camera!

When I was younger, I wanted to be…

a basketball player.  I never really thought I’d be doing what I do, but when I was younger I was still always pretty much doing the same thing.

I’m inspired by…

people! Seeing other people succeed or get what they deserve, makes me want to try that much harder.

The one person who motivates me is…

my business partner Cyrus Igono, definitely helped me develop my skills and speed, and continues to inspire and motivate me every day.

If I could change anything in the world, it would be…

money, everyone should be after knowledge, solutions, ideas, betterment of the world! Not money. People shouldn’t waste their time with that.

The perfect day would be…

as long as I do better than my previous best… and I don’t die the day was perfect! I’m getting better at things every day!

My first job was…

Cinabon Maker and bootleg CD’s.

My favorite escape…

is learning something.

My life…

is a game… The Hero’s Journey.

I’m currently working on…

I just posted something on GadsenRecords.com a minute ago… That’s kind of a big question…

Always…

take it to the next level.

Never…

be out partied.

Favorite Quote…

“The ego is as you think of yourself. You in relation to all the commitments of your life, as you understand them. The self is the whole range of possibilities that you’ve never even thought of. And you’re stuck with you’re past when you’re stuck with the ego. Because if all you know about yourself is what you found out about yourself, well, that already happened. The self is a whole field of potentialities to come through.” – Joseph Campbell

Biggest Dream…

I try to lucid dream… so I’ve seen whole worlds in my mind. My real dream though… I’m living it.

My Pet Peeve(s)…

hate.
