Ever since I can remember, I have loved creating. There’s something about the process of making something out of nothing that drives the universe and satisfies the soul like not many other things can.
This is my passion.
I was fortunate to have been brought up with unconditional love and kindness, surrounded by the most dedicated and loving family one could ask for. They taught me to be curious and kind, and they helped me paint a beautiful picture of the world in my eyes.
This is my inspiration.
But as I grew up, I became exposed to the harsher realities of the world, to see the other side of people—the ignorance, the hatred, the apathy that plagues many, the division between us, the things we do to harm the planet and its innocent, defenseless beings.
This is my motivation.
My painting was tainted.
The more I grew up, the more powerless and defeated I felt, the more complacent and cynical I could feel myself becoming. But out of my affliction, I began to realize that I could contribute to the painting. I had a great vehicle of change at my disposal and I could use it.
So I decided to use my music and art for good, to try and impact whomever I could, and help spread the kindness, compassion, and curiosity that my family had ingrained in me.
This is my mission.
Please enjoy my first music video, Siddhartha (Running Water). It is about learning to accept change—a struggle that most of us deal with at one point or another—told through the story of Siddhartha Gautama, the man who would eventually become known as the Buddha.
I dedicate it to anyone who has ever gone through this struggle. If you can, watch it on a large screen with some good headphones or speakers to get the best experience out of it as possible.
I hope you enjoy.
