About Me

What's good world? I'm from West Philadelphia born and raised. On the playground is where I spent most of my days! Because life is too short not to enjoy it to the fullest!

I love life, people and exploring the world. Music was my first love. That was until I met Travel. She stole my heart. And I have been chasing her ever since. But I think I finally found a way to marry them both.

"WORLD PEACE KARAOKE." I know, I know. You're thinking that is the best idea since leotards. Thanks.

No seriously, I think it would a dope excuse to get a bunch of locals and foreigners together to just vibe out.

I will be traveling around the world all of 2018. My goal is to finish writing my book, The 7 Dimensions of Optimal Wellness, and meet a million awesome people while I am doing it.

So, I will be coming to a city near you. Let's belt our brains for peace, unity, and love. I know I sound like a hippy, but we need a love revolution in this world. Let's be that change!

Email me your favorite Karaoke Bar. Let's get ready to turn up. Peace and Chicken Grease!
