“I feel there aren’t enough artists speaking out against the established powers and giving a voice to the working class, the oppressed and those in need. In this over globalized and corporatized world, there’s a very real danger that we lose what’s really important to all of us. The average everyday person is what makes this world go around in every sense. And what’s important to us is love, connection, health, family, friends, and community. I believe a small gesture of kindness can change a person’s life in a very profound and positive way and that’s what I base my philosophy on.”
