From nothing to something would be the truth. I am a survivor but I pulled myself out of darkness. I was Born on November 26th 1981. I suffered great abuse as a child and as result I ended up being put on the streets at the age of 13.

After growing up in a world of drugs & street life I realize that this is not the life for me. So after going many years of recovery I turned my anger for the world into art and started my first project called “The Zoar”, a film series that loosely represented my struggle.

With elaborate costumes and artistic filters in the film series it is a collection of films that brought me into the art scene. I’m most known for my BIO~BLOOD series musical interpretation “The Zoar”, but has now become something way more. A collection of art films paintings sculptures photography and much much more. BIO~BLOOD is what I’m most proud of. As a gay artist I don’t really focus on my sexuality as I believe I’m just a person trying to tell a story but I’m not ashamed of who I am.

My hope and life is that I can inspire other people with similar struggles in life to tell them to never give up on their dreams
