At 17, receiving my first platinum plaque for Lady Gaga’s “The Fame Monster”; Releasing debut EP “The Blue Dream Project” in London and selling out my first headlined show.
Why I use Sensi Chews: They’re best for helping me ease into my down time when I need to put my feet up and take a break. It helps my body to relax in which case my mind soon follows too.
Favorite pastime: Reading, playing the guitar, visiting the beach, and watching a really good movie.
Music is apart of my DNA. For as long as I can remember, my father has been performing and writing songs. I started singing as early as 4 years old, and recorded my first song when I was just 10. I always knew that music was what I was supposed to do. When I was 16, I landed my first gig working for Lady Gaga, and received a platinum plaque for my participation on her sophomore album. My passion for music has opened many doors and has led to amazing opportunities like working with artists such as Trey Songz, and Mary J. Blige to name a few.
Fortunately, I had my father and grandmother as examples, guiding me along the journey. However, on April 30, 2015, that all changed. I lost my grandmother to colon cancer. During her regression, I began my research on cannabis and its healing properties in efforts to save her from the ravaging disease. This was the official start of my marijuana journey.
I grew an affinity for the plant after realizing it was about more than just “stoner culture”. In search for more knowledge I began working at dispensaries, and developed a strong love not just for the healing aspects, but also for helping patients. In the midsts of all this, I learned that Blue Dream is my favorite strain of marijuana, as it helped me through tough times of coping with the death of my grandmother. I named my EP “The Blue Dream Project” as an ode to the strain, and what it helped me to accomplish.
Both marijuana and music are healing, in their own respect, but when paired the possibilities are infinite. Since releasing my EP in January, I have traveled from the states to London, Amsterdam, and back to LA, spreading awareness and changing the frequency of the world.
