WHAT IS A TYPICAL DAY LIKE FOR YOU? DO YOU HAVE A PROCESS OR SCHEDULE THAT YOU FOLLOW?
I wake up, pray and commune with God, Then I work on new music, research, find ways to improve my live set, record videos, answer emails and comments. I improvise so everything happens in the moment when I create, but the planning and preparations takes years.

Addiction of drugs and alcohol abuse was my biggest struggle through my life, but thanks to God He rescued me from it.
