What is your favourite city in the world?

I think my favorite city so far is New York City. I just love the pacing and how there’s so many different people and cultures everywhere. When I got there I usually don’t even do the stereotypical tourist things I pretend like I’m a local lol.

What’s the most unusual item you take everywhere you go?

I haven’t done it in a minute, but I used to carry a lighter everywhere. I don’t smoke so that’s what makes it unusual, but I do it for two reasons.

  1. Smokers always ask for a light so it’s a good thing to have to start random conversations.
  2. If I’m ever kidnapped I can burn the ropes they tie me with.

Why do you do what you do?

I do what I do because I get the opportunity to encourage my self and others by speaking life loudly and boldly. I think the world has enough negativity also I hope I can be a loud speaker of positivity, light, and love that will uplift a generation.

When was the last time a song gave you goosebumps?

Chris Tomlins – Good Good Father. It gave me goosebumps and I cried like a baby.

Where do you go to relax?

I meditate, read and journal. Things things just help me really slow down and cherish the moment I’m in. I think our constat state of over stimulation is the main that that stresses me out.

Analog or digital?

I’m definitely a digital guy I think it’s just the language that makes the most sense to me.

How do you say goodbye where you’re from?

We say goodbye and tell the person to text us when they get home.


And in our best Bill O’Reilly voice, to play us out we have James Gardin and Terem’s ICONIC.
